A video showing residents of Ekwulobia in Anambra state carting away bottles of drinks after a truck conveying crates of beer fell on the roadside has surfaced online and gone viral.
The incident reportedly happened on Friday while the truck was on its way to an unknown destination with the drinks.
In the video clip, many of the residents can be seen besieging the scene of the incident trying to make away with bottles that still contain content.
Some of them can also be seen packed together with no regard for the government’s social distancing directive aimed at combating spread of the coronavirus pandemic in the country.
The development comes at about the same time when there are growing concerns over the rising cases of the novel disease in the country.
So far, Nigeria has 3,912 cases of the virus with 117 deaths recorded while 679 patients have been discharged after treatment.
TheCable Lifestyle had earlier reported how Daddy Showkey, a veteran singer, took a swipe at Nigerians violating the social directive among other measures after the lockdown was relaxed, wondering if they don’t value their lives.
