Kano State Government says it has discovered a warehouse in the state where food items meant for palliatives were being diverted.
Malam Bature Dawakin-Tofa, the Press Secretary to the governor, stated in a statement issued on Sunday in Kano that the warehouse was located at Sharada Industrial Estate.
Dawakin-Tofa stated that Gov. Abba Yusuf and government officials were led around the secluded storehouse where the hijacked food items and chemical drums were kept.
The governor expressed amazement and threatened to prosecute everyone involved in the shameful act of withholding palliative food items such as maize and rice.
He quickly ordered the police commissioner to take over the facility and undertake a thorough investigation to find the perpetrators.
