After the Sunday night invasion of a warehouse owned by Senator Friday Konbowei Benson by residents of Yenagoa, Bayelsa State capital, the state government has commenced the sharing of palliatives stored at the Bayelsa Palm warehouse.


The Bayelsa State Emergency Management Agency (BYSEMA) through its Director- General, Mr Samuel Walaman Igrubia had explained that people invaded the warehouse located along Isaac Boro Expressway with the erroneous belief that fresh palliatives were housed there.

According to him the food items looted were not fit for human consumption hence those who took them should not attempt to consume them.

However residents of Yenagoa had taken BYSEMA’s clarification with a pinch of salt as they besieged the Senator’s Benson warehouse Monday evening forcing the state government to deploy the state security outfit, Operation Doo Akpo to safeguard the warehouse.
