Speaking to Gobroadsheet through his mobile phone, the Commissioner believed that, the hoodlums overpowered the security men at the property before gaining access into the warehouse which he said did not belong to him as alleged.
“It is not my house. It is a place where they kept the palliative for Chikun local government. The palliative has been shared to all the local governments and people responsible for the sharing found a place to keep this food waiting to be given the green light to share.
“No local government has shared because they are waiting for the logistics from the co, committee. Unfortunately they have broken into Chikun own.
“I just went round and saw that they have broken into Kaduna South local government too. My concern it let there be no casualty. The food items were made for them but they have refused to let it be shared orderly.
“I believe they overwhelmed the security men there. I don’t know if there is anything to do to for the targets poor and vulnerable people to get the palliative because I am not a member of the committee in charge”, he explained.
