A Senior Advocate of Nigeria, Ebun-Olu Adegboruwa, has described Sunday’s looting of a government warehouse in Abuja as a reflection of the frustration of the majority of Nigerians with the economic policies of President Bola Tinubu’s administration.

Adegboruwa gave this view while featuring on Channels Television’s breakfast show (The Morning Brief) on Monday.

He said it is a message to the President and his economic team that there is a need to rejig the system to guarantee the survival of the majority of Nigerians.

He said, “Across all states in Nigeria presently there is a crisis of survival from the part of the people. So, it is not just this particular occurrence, a truck bearing foodstuff was randomly attacked and looted. I do not support this in any way at all because we must have an environment where we can secure lives and property.

“But it is a reflection of the fact that the economic policies of the present administration are not helping the people of the country and of course these occurrences showcase the frustration that people are going through.”

Residents of the Federal Capital Territory, FCT, looted a warehouse allegedly belonging to the National Emergency Management Agency of Nigeria, NEMA, over the current economic hardship across the country.

It was gathered that the residents carted away foodstuffs and other items.
