Some business owners in Edo state were met with great shock and heavy disappointment as hoodlums, stormed their warehouse and carted away their items in Eribo estate in Egor local government of Edo state on Saturday, October 24.
The state government had a warehouse in the estate where they kept COVID19 palliatives — the estate also housed a number of other warehouses where private business owners kept their goods.
The hoodlums invaded the warehouses and took the palliatives they found there. They however didn’t stop there as they also stormed the warehouses of the other businessmen and carted away items ranging from foodstuffs, baby diapers, and cartons of drinks.
The businessmen wailed uncontrollably as they watched the hoodlums loot their warehouses. The estate management reportedly tried to get security agents to help stop the looting but were reportedly unsuccessful.
Ejekwe being of the victims of the looting by the hoodlums stated that he got numbers of some policemen who also refused to come to their rescue because they fear they may kill someone while attempting to disperse the hoodlums.
