Just In: Hoodlums break into warehouse in Adamawa, cart away food items [Video]
A mob comprising hundreds of youths on Sunday morning broke into a large warehouse in Adamawa and carted away food items stored there.
A series of videos posted by witnesses first showed the youths advancing towards the warehouse and security operatives forming a cordon over the warehouse and asking them to stay off.
The warehouse is located at Kwarnawaya, a community by the Yola-Numan Road near Yola, the state capital
The subsequent video showed the youths, in their hundreds, getting past the security operatives and succeeding in opening gate of the warehouse and helping themselves to available food items.
The break-in at Kwarnawaya, which occurred as many residents were in church Sunday morning, came as the first #EndSARS related violence in Adamawa State.
The state had seemed aloof to the movement, especially after a trickle of youths, who attempted a protest match were dispersed by the police a little over a week ago.
The Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO) in Adamawa State, DSP Suleiman Nguroje said the police had mobilised officers and men to the place.
“We have heard that hundreds of people have gathered and are looting food stuff at a storage facility in Kwanarwaya.
“We have mobilised policemen and are on our way to the scene to restore peace,” Nguroje said.
