Can’t ask marauders to return stolen COVID-19 palliatives, says Rino Omokri

Rino Omokri, former presidential aide to Goodluck Jonathan, said why a Nigerian who looted COVID-19 palliatives across the country should not return these items.

On Monday night, Omokri tweeted on his official Twitter account that before the governors order their people to return the stolen items, government officials who plundered the treasury should also be asked to do the same.

He wrote:

“You cannot ask those who plundered the food to return their booty without asking those who plundered the government’s coffers and made the masses so poor that they had to plunder the palliatives that should have been given to them first. #EndSARS “

Recall that a series of assisted robberies took place in several states across the country when residents invaded warehouses holding accumulated COVID-19 palliatives.

Following the robberies, the state government in Plateau on Monday gave looters 48 hours to recover stolen COVID-19 palliatives in their possession or under threat of arrest.

The looting is part of the events that followed the peaceful #EndSARS protests, interrupted by violence and vandalism.
