The Ekiti state Government in a statement released by the Chief Press Secretary to the Governor, Yinka Oyebode, proclaimed that COVID-19 palliatives in Ekiti state had since been distributed during the lockdown period.
The statement further disclosed that some of the raw food items dragged away have already been preserved with chemicals which make them unsound for consumption.
Residents are therefore advised not to consume them as they can kill. The statement read; “Ekiti State has NO CACOVID palliative warehouse as all the palliatives have been distributed.
The items hauled away by the residents are Single Super Phosphate fertilizer and NPK which they have erroneously identified as Gari.
The State Emergency Management Agency (SEMA) store has emergency supplies for disaster response e.g. flood, fire or any other emergencies. “Some are even making away with corns preserved for planting with chemical preferment.
All these items are poisonous and not fit for consumption!“We appeal to our people not to consume these items because they can kill.”
