Following the looting spree occurring in Nigeria, Senator, Teslim Folarin has explained that some of the items stolen from his house were bought with public funds by a government agency and were handed over to him for distribution. Some hoodlums in the early hours of Saturday had stormed his residence and carted away with motorcycles and freezers. Folarin, who represents Oyo Central in the Senate, said he had just ‘formally taken receipt’ of the items from the agency. “For the sake of clarification, I have just formally taken receipt of the empowerment materials from a federal agency coordinating constituency projects for federal lawmakers,” the lawmaker said in his reaction to the looting of the property which he said included hundreds of generators, motorcycles and deep freezers. Mr Folarin’s admittance brings to fore the discussion around constituency projects which many Nigerians including an anti-corruption agency, ICPC, believe is sometimes used for fraud.
