Fidelity Bank  ‘Palliatives’ Throw Abuja Community Into Confusion, Operatives Flee Venue

Fidelity Bank palliatives have thrown hungry residents of Chibiri community in Kuje Area Council of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) into confusion and more hunger.
In the midst of distributing the palliatives today, February 29, the management staff of the bank had to flee the venue to avoid being lynched by the angry residents when it became obvious that some group of people have hijacked the package . The package is made up of two kilogramme of rice, one kilogramme of garri and four pieces of indomie.
Our reporter who was at the venue, said that the bank management staff abruptly shut the van in which the items were stored from where they were being distributed and took to their heels when those who call themselves indigenes clashed with none indigenes over the mode of distribution.
The venue was said to have become rowdy and charged when only the indigenes were being called to receive the package, while none indigenes were ignored.
Information reaching us said that names of all the residents of the community have earlier been compiled in the palace of the community chief, with the intention that they would all benefit from the items.
However, trouble started when, at the venue, it was only the indigenes that were being called for nearly two hours.
”Why would they invite us to come and suffer in this hot sun if they would not give us the package,” one of the none indigenes complained.
The leader of the Fidelity bank team, a woman, who refused to give her name, had earlier told our reporter that the bank has made it a policy to participate in providing palliatives to poor Nigerians in various communities across the country.
The manager, who, in the heat of disagreement between the indigenes and none indigenes, drove off out of the venue in her Jeep with other staff of the bank, said that the palliatives are part of the efforts of the bank to support the government.
