She said, “The action committee on COVID-19 decided to distribute palliative to market traders who were also affected from not being able to open their shops.

“The market association wasinvited and the palliatives were shared. However,  we heard that chairman of the market,  Yusuf, collected the palliative on behalf of the traders and instead of distributing  to traders, he felt they should sell them and that is how the palliative got to Kano.

“The matter is being investigated and the chairman has been arrested.”
