Video evidence has surfaced showing that the COVID-19 palliatives found untouched in a Lagos warehouse were delivered since May 1.
The palliatives were donated by the NGO – Coalition Against COVID-19 (CA-COVID) – and were supposed to be shared to the general public during the coronavirus lockdown to help cushion the effects of the pandemic.
The Lagos State Government has denied hoarding the items for personal use by the officials in charge, saying the distribution of the items was halted due to the #ENDSARS protests.

Some people have shared pictures on social media showing that some of the items have already gone bad from extended period of storage.
