Aisha pointed out that without considering the availability of raw materials for production, Indomie had become scarce once it was purchased and hidden away in warehouses as COVID-19 palliatives.

Recall that in the wake of the EndSARS protests which rocked Nigeria over a two-week period, some citizens uncovered hidden warehouses containing Indomie noodles and other supplies which were supposed to be served to the general public as relief items for the pandemic.

According to the EndSARS front-liner, it was supposed to be produced for consumption, however, it was bought off the market and restricted from public access.

Taking to Twitter, she wrote;

Beyond the issue of availability of raw materials and all, do you know why indomie is getting so expensive? Artificial scarcity was created when they bought it and hid it in warehouses as COVID-19 palliatives. What was to be produced for consumption was bought off and not shared!
