A resident in the area who spoke to newsmen said after the hoodlums gained entrance into the warehouse, they looted some COVID-19 palliatives.
The warehouse is located on Benster Crescent, popularly called Monkey Village.
It was gathered that the hoodlums also set a bonfire at a junction not far from the warehouse.
According to ThePunch, the hoodlums later asked residents in the area to move into the warehouse and pick some palliatives.
One of the residents, Sherif Olaiya, said;
We heard sounds of gunshots. The hoodlums have attacked a place where COVID-19 palliatives are stored. They are asking residents to come and be picking the palliatives.
Videos and images that have surfaced showed that the food items were branded as COVID-19 palliatives.

People kept Covid-19 palliative, that they will never eat, away from people that actually need it.
Things that after 6 months, you’ll throw them away because they are occupying space or they are no longer good.
Or you’ll sell them for cheap.
Why are our people wicked?
