A former Senator and civil rights activist, says some governors place more value on Indomie than human lives.
In what appears to be his response to the house-to-house search over the looting of warehouses across the country, Sani taunted the governors.
Warehouses across the country were looted in the violence that trailed the #EndSARS crisis which lasted 13 days.
Items such as rice, sugar, salt, garri, noodles and spaghetti were looted.
In some of the videos, which have since gone viral, many of the looters accused the state government of hoarding the relief items.
Some governors had ordered a house-to-house search to recover the looted items.
Governor of Adamawa, Ahmadu Fintiri, even threatened to demolish any building where stolen items are found.
In a Twitter post on Saturday, Sani said: “For the Governors; Indomie is Gold and human life is Bronze.”
For the Governors;Indomie is Gold and human life is Bronze.

The post has elicited comments, with many agreeing with the senator that some politicians do not value lives. Below are some of the comments:
Human life only matters during election campaign, to most of our politicians.

It is tragic. The excuse that they stored it to repackage does not even add up because indomie is already packaged. It just shows the country is paying too much taxpayers money to people in power and we are not getting value for money. Incompetence everywhere. #EndSARS

There are lots of criminals in government houses all over the 36 states. We need to realize that. Forget my governor is a nice man when he brings out crumbs. They are not spending our money on us. Larger percentage of the allocation is in their pockets. Very Very greedy men.
