Lagos residents on Thursday attacked a warehouse where COVID-19 palliatives were stored at Mazamaza community of Lagos.

The community is located in Oriade Local Council Development Area of the state.

Video clips circulating across social media showed that the residents, led by some hoodlums, gained entrance into the warehouse and looted COVID-19 food aid.

The items carted away were branded as COVID-19 palliatives.

The development comes against the breakdown of law and order following Tuesday night shootings of #EndSARS protesters at Lekki.

Numerous organisations and public institutions were set ablaze across the state on Wednesday.

Meanwhile, the Lagos State Government has condemned the vandalization of the warehouse at Mazamaza.

In a statement by Abisola Olusanya  Acting Commissioner for Agriculture In the state, the government said the warehouse houses the food palliative packages donated to the State government by the Private Sector Coalition against COVID-19 (CACOVID) group.
