The aggressive search for hidden COVID-19 palliatives continues Sunday, October 25, 2020, as hoodlums invaded the residence of the former Speaker of the House of Representatives, Yakubu Dogara.
The house which is located near Jos University Teaching Hospital was invaded by residents despite the ongoing curfew imposed by the state government.
Reports from the state stated that the intruders were in search of COVID-19 palliatives, a move similar to states like Osun, Lagos, Kaduna, Plateau, and Edo where covid-19 palliatives were discovered and looted by residents.
It was gathered that Dogara’s house was attacked about 9 am, according to an eyewitness.
Security operatives take charge
Meanwhile, policemen and other security operatives have been deployed in the area to enforce the curfew. Gunshots were heard to disperse the rampaging youths without success.
The Punch quoted a source as saying, “They broke into the house of the former Speaker and attacked everyone, including Dogara’s brother, and (they) are currently moving anything they see. In the process, the invaders moved several items – tricycles, furniture, electronics, and other valuables – out of the house.”
