Hundreds of youths in Plateau State on Sunday defied the ongoing curfew imposed by the state government and invaded buildings in search of COVID-19 palliatives.
It was learnt that the house of a former Speaker of the House of Representatives, Yakubu Dogara, located near Jos University Teaching Hospital, was also attacked and looted.
It was gathered that Dogara’s house was attacked about 9 am.
Policemen and other security operatives enforcing the curfew shot to disperse the rampaging youths without success.
“They broke into the house of the former Speaker and attacked everyone, including Dogara’s brother and (they) are currently moving anything they see. In the process, the invaders moved several items – tricycles, furniture, electronics and other valuables – out of the house,” an eyewitness told The EARDRUM9JA MEDIA.
