Former Governor of Anambra State, Chukwuemeka Ezeife, has cautioned the Federal Government about extending the lockdown as it would mean many Nigerians dying of hunger.
“If there should be another extension, Nigerians would die. The truth is that people are tired.
People would die as a result of riot that is the fact. If you consider what has been happening across the country, Lagos and Ogun states in particular, where gang robbery has become the order of the day, you will agree that a complete lockdown will not be advisable,” he said.
Ezeife said that if the lockdown extension is being considered, some sectors have to be left opened for the coronavirus fight to be successful.
