Thugs go crazy robbing Delta’s popular mall

Several criminals have reportedly gone mad after robbing a supermarket in Delta State.

On Friday, thugs robbed and ransacked valuables at the famous Memories Superstores, located in the wooden town of Sapele, in the Sapele metropolitan area of ​​the Delta.

This came after a 48-hour curfew imposed by Governor Ifeani Okova to stop further loss of life and property destruction across the state.

The bandits, in large part, vandalized a shopping center located on Ajogodo Street and took away millions of goods.

If it had not been for the arrival of Nigerian Army agents, the 19th Battalion Coco, more damage would have been recorded.

The disbelievers reportedly placed spies at some distance from the mall to warn them of unwanted companies, so they fled with some valuables when they saw the soldiers.

A witness, Akporotu Onome, told reporters that thugs broke into the mall and forced their way into it, then began to loot goods inside the store.

“People were carrying goods and others destroyed things until the soldiers arrived,” he said.

The people rallied the thugs, hiding under the guise of ENDSARS protesters, on Thursday evening, despite the curfew, they continued their protests with bonfires throughout the city of Sapele.

Shots were also reported in the busy area of ​​Olympia along Oleg and Okpe roads, where thugs also gathered.

The Honorable President of the Sapele region. Eugene Inoagan urged young people to be careful while the government works on their demands.

“We know how sad young people are, and I can assure you that the government is doing everything to meet your demands, just give the government some time,” he said, speaking to reporters after the incident.

Omasan Mabiaku, Senior Special Assistant to the Governor of Okova for Security, who also spoke at the scene, said: “It is unfortunate that the real youth protests have been taken over by thugs.

“This is not a protest; real protesters do not get into other people’s property and rob: they steal, and we totally condemn that.

“We encourage young people, parents and guardians to speak to their people.”
