According to reports, residents of Okrika were in deep shock and many ran for their lives after an elderly man was said to have collapsed on the street.
A good Samaritan Doctor was said to have ran out of his house to asked the man what was wrong and later found out that the man collapsed out of starvation.
A lady who shared the news on a WhatsApp group said:

The Government of Nigerian claimed they have distributed Billions of Naira to the extreme poor to alleviate the sufferings, but locals doubt if those funds really got to the right people.
