Citing the 24-hour curfew in some states, most of the buyers told The Guardian that there was a need for them to stockpile their homes with foods and other valuables, to prepare for the unknown.

“The truth is that I don’t want my family to experience what we went through during the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) lockdown when even water became gold. So I think it is better to act fast now before it would be too late again,” said Paul Adamu.
