ALERT: ATTEMPTS TO BREAK NASCO WAREHOUSE IN JOS FOR ICRC STOCK
This is to clarify that Plateau State Government does not have any covid-19 food supplies in NASCO warehouse in Jos, Central Nigeria.
The International Committee of the Red Cross has for long stored items meant for victims of disaster in the warehouse.
It is understood that tempers are high and citizens who may habour bitterness against Government want to fight back, through among others, breaking into facilities where government covid-19 supplies are believed to have been kept.
However, caution should be taken not to aggravate the sufferings of others. Those targeting the NASCO warehouse should be guided please.
Thanks for your kind understand.
