Former Second Vice President of the Nigeria Bar Association (NBA), Monday Ubani has offered free legal services to any Nigerian arrested for taking Covid-19 palliatives from warehouses in various States across the country.
In the last one week, there has been reported cases of residents breaking into warehouses where Covid-19 Palliatives were stored and helping themselves out with food items.
The trend which started in Lagos with the total raid of a large warehouse in Maza Maza area of the State where CA-COVID Palliatives worth N1.4billion were stored, quickly spread across the South West States, then the North, the East including the Federal Capital Territory.
Houses of some politicians where palliatives were also stored were not spared as residents stormed such locations, broke into the house and carted away anything they considered valuable to them.
Already, security agencies have arrested some residents who were caught in the act, while some houses were raided and some items retrieved.
Some State Governors had also called on residents to return the looted items back to the warehouse or risk arrest and prosecution.
But responding to the development, Ubani on his Facebook page, said he was ready to offer his legal services at no cost to such residents who went on the looting spree as a result of hunger urging them to reach out to him.
“After careful prayer and leading of the spirit, I hereby offer free legal services to any Nigerian who is arrested for taking any of the palliatives from the warehouses in the States as a result of hunger. Contact me,” he wrote.
