Some youths of Maza-Maza, Mile 2 area of Lagos on Thursday uncovered a warehouse in Monkey Community in the area stocked with COVID-19 palliatives.

The palliatives, which were branded Ca-COVID palliatives Lagos State, included countless bags of rice, cartons of noodles, spaghetti, salt, vegetable oil, tomato paste, beans, garri, and lots more.

The palliatives are, possibly, foodstuffs meant to alleviate the effect of the lockdown and the economic meltdown on the poor populace in Lagos state from March when the lockdown took effect.

Many residents were seen happily carting away the palliatives, which they said were their rights.

A female resident aaid peope had been removing items from the warehouse since 7am, even though it was not from the main entrance, adding that the warehouse is still fully loaded.
“There was no road for me to pass. There were so many people carrying things. Two pregnant women and a young guy slumped. I don’t know if they are dead,” she said.
