Nigerians arrested in the act of looting Covid-19 palliatives can enjoy good legal representation as a former Second Vice President of the Nigeria Bar Association (NBA), Monday Ubani is offering free legal services for such arrested looters.
Ubani who took to his Facebook page to make the announcement said he was ready to offer his legal services at no cost to such residents who embarked on the looting spree as a result of hunger, urging them to reach out to him.
“After careful prayer and leading of the spirit, I hereby offer free legal services to any Nigerian who is arrested for taking any of the palliatives from the warehouses in the States as a result of hunger. Contact me,” he wrote.
His offer comes on the heels of reported cases of residents breaking into warehouses where Covid-19 Palliatives were stored and helping themselves out with food items.
The trend which began in Lagos with the total raid of a large warehouse in Maza Maza area of the State where CA-COVID Palliatives worth N1.4billion were stored, has spread like wildfire across the South West States, the North and East including the Federal Capital Territory.
The looters expanded their operations to houses of politicians where they believed palliatives were stored, broke into such house and carted away anything they considered valuable to them.
Reacting, security agencies carried out a number of arrests while state Governors had made calls fot the return of the looted items back to the warehouse, threatening defaulters with arrest and prosecution.
