Earlier today, another video surfaced. This time, it was a video showing a mob attacking a truck laden-with bags of rice.





In the video, people can be seen in a wild raid of the truck conveying bags of rice. The scramble was to grab at least a bag of the consignment.

This happened despite the lockdown policy of the Federal Government.

 

Recall that a few days ago, President Muhammadu Buhari announced a 14-day extension to a lockdown in Lagos, Abuja and Ogun state to combat the coronavirus pandemic.

In a televised address, Buhari said “it has become necessary to extend the current restriction of movement” that was set to expire later in the day.

Initial 14-day lockdowns in the three areas began on March 30.





There are currently 323 confirmed cases of the virus in Nigeria, with 71% of them registered in Lagos and the capital territory of Abuja. Ten people have died so far.  Raid Truck

Buhari said he was “fully aware of the great difficulties experienced especially by those who earn a daily wage”.

“But despite these realities, we must not change the restrictions,” he added.

The government has pledged a series of support measures to ease the financial pain for the most vulnerable, but there have been widespread complaints that not enough is being done for those facing hunger.

The vast majority of Nigerians depend on daily wages, they have to go out to get money and buy food to put it on the table for their families.

Buhari said compliance with the stay-at-home order and other restrictions introduced by state governors across the country had been “generally good”.
