The Lagos State Government has condemned the act of vandalizing a warehouse where the food palliative packages donated to the government by the Private Sector Coalition against COVID-19 (CACOVID) group was stored.

Abisola Olusanya who is the Acting Commissioner for Agriculture, said the items belongs to the South-eastern part of Nigeria contrary to the earlier reports that the palliatives were all for Lagos state. He added that the distribution of the materials was ongoing but had to stop due to #EndSARS protests.

The Governor of the Lagos State, Babajide Sanwo-Olu had taken receipt of the food palliatives from the CACOVID group meant for distribution to the indigent. This receipt was taken on September 22nd 2020 as said.

The State had repackaged its share of the consignment and was distributing it before the #EndSARS protest came up which affected the dstribution of the parlaitives. The repackaging was being done to account for every beneficiary according to the agreement with the CACOVID Group and the process was monitored by them.

According to him, the warehouse is not owned by the stste government and its usage was for the palliatives given by CACOVID team. He said, the distribution was on-going but had to be halted due to protest in the state before the invasion of the warehouse.

For effective distribution of the food palliatives, some groups were ised as disteibution channel so as to reaxh the people. Such groups are Transport Unions, Ethnic Groups, Religious Associations, Artisans and Tradesmen Association, Marketmen and Women and so on

In his statement, he said "The State Government, however, regrets the invasion of the warehouse and appreciates the support offered by the CACOVID group to the citizenry of Lagos,”.
