Palliative looted in Lagos not from Humanitarian affairs ministry – Official

The Ministry of Humanitarian Affairs, Disaster Management and Social Development says the Covid-19 palliatives discovered in a Lagos warehouse, were not from the Minstry as widely speculated.

In a statement, the Special Assistant Media to the Minister, Nneka Anibeze said the photos and videos recorded at the warehouse indicated that the bags of rice and other items were clearly marked ‘Lagos State Government and Ca-Covid’.

Ca-Covid is short for Coalition Against Covid-19, a private sector led task force in partnership with the Federal Government, the Nigeria Centre For Disease Control NCDC and the World Health Organization WHO.

According to the statement, the Minstry did not procure, distribute or facilitate the distribution of palliatives under the Ca-Covid initiative.
