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 among the places attacked was the house of a former Speaker of the House of Representatives, Yakubu Dogara, located near Jos University Teaching Hospital.

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
Meanwhile, the All Progressives Congress chieftain, Bola Tinubu, has lamented the invasion and wanton looting of public and private assets in the state of late.
Tinubu made this known on Saturday when he paid a visit to Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, at the State House in Marina.
Addressing journalists after the meeting with the governor, Tinubu said he did not travel out of the country as reported by some sections of the media.
He told reporters that the purpose of his meeting with Sanwo-Olu was to ask him if he had ordered soldiers to attack #EndSARS protesters at the Lekki toll gate on Tuesday.
