How my CoS opened a COVID-19 palliative warehouse for thugs – says Gov. Bauchi
Bala Mohammed, Governor of Bauchi State, described how his chief of staff disappointed the thugs, The PUNCH reported.
The governor described how his chief of staff, Ladan Salihu, opened a warehouse in the state that stores COVID-19 palliatives for offenders.
The governor explained that his CoS threw open the warehouse doors when gunmen tried to break into the warehouse.
Mohammed, who reported this on his verified Twitter account, said the thugs were disappointed to see an empty warehouse, adding that groceries were being distributed from May to August.
The Governor wrote: “Today, criminals attempted to raid a COVID-19 palliative stockpile in Bauchi State. My chief of staff was informed and ordered to open the warehouse.
“They saw that it was empty and returned. And that’s because we shared everything with the beneficiaries on time.
“When it comes to accountability, when we started rolling out a few months ago, I made sure I created a very influential committee, of which I was part.
“At the core of my mandate remains a decisive push to provide the citizens of Bauchi State with a better perspective and greater opportunities for a prosperous life. We are doing this and will do more. “
The bandits looted palliative warehouses in Lagos, Jos, Benin, Osuna, Akura, Ibadan and several other major cities where food donated by the COVID-19 Private Sector Coalition, also known as the CACOVID group, was stored.
There have been reports of widespread violence, arson, and looting in the country as criminals took advantage of the #EndSARS protests to wreak havoc on the country.
