Scores of hungry residents were seen at a scene of an accident packing spaghetti which scattered on the road because of the impact of the crash.
The accident occurred at UTC Junction, Port Harcourt, Rivers State on Thursday following an accident involving a mini bus and a trailer loaded with cartons of spaghetti.
The residents rushed to the scene with different sizes of bags and began to pack the pieces of noodles that littered the ground as they complained of hunger.
According to the Nation the truck was on its way to deliver the spaghetti when it was involved in the accident that wrecked the blue van.
But despite the checkpoint of the police located in the area, the residents jostled and pushed one another insisting that it was manner from heaven.
All the persons involved in the struggle for the pasta ignored all the COVID-19 preventive measures of social distancing and wearing of face masks.
Some of them removed their shirts and used them to pack the spaghetti while others collected handfuls before leaving the scene.
A middle age man, who refused to mention his name, said the incident was divine describing the spaghetti as food palliatives.
But officials of the company, that manufactures the IRS pasta, later arrived the scene escorted by security operatives to salvage some of the products.
One of the men at the scene said, “God has remembered us to give us this food palliative. We have been hungry since this Coronavirus started. The lockdowns worsened our situation. But this morning following the accident involving a truck and a van, we saw spaghetti all over the road.”
