Residents of Yenagoa, the Bayelsa State capital, on Sunday, reportedly invaded and looted a warehouse where palliatives were kept.

The warehouse, located in Kpansia suburb of the state capital, was where the 2022 flood palliatives were stored.

However, it was not confirmed whether the subsidy palliatives provided by President Bola Tinubu to states to cushion the effects of the subsidy removal were among the items looted by the hungry residents.

Confirming the invasion of the warehouse, the Bayelsa State Emergency Management Agency, BYSEMA said the incident occurred at about 7:45p.m. on Sunday.

It happened almost an hour after the Director-General, Walamam Igrubia, alongside some BYSEMA personnel left the warehouse premises.

The agency added that during the 2022 flood in the state, it used the warehouse to store food items.

BYSEMA, in the statement, condemned the action of the yet-to-be-identified persons that invaded the premises of a warehouse and also condemns the attempt to politicize the incident by opposition elements in the state.
