A Nigerian designer, Longe Segun has claimed that the structure which chef Hilda Baci used to do her cook-a-thon was ransacked after the completed the task.
He revealed this via Twitter, explaining that he works with the company that built the structure.
Hilda Baci commenced her four-day ‘cook-a-thon’ on Thursday, May 11 at Amore Gardens, Lekki, Lagos State in an attempt to break the Guinness World Record for the longest cooking hours.
According to Segun, on the last day of the task, attendees stole everything that was inside, leaving behind only the refrigerator.
The guy shared the story in reaction to someone who posted photos of themselves at the venue of the cook-a-thon.
He listed some of the stolen items to include; pots, bowls, baskets, and fake fruits used to decorate the interior.
The man, however, said that his boss was understanding and did not blame any of the workers for the loss of the properties.
Segun wrote; “That structure behind you was built by Art company I work with. It’s one of the project I supervised. On the last day of the Cookathon, everything in that structure was stolen by people that came to the venue. D only thing they didn’t steal was the fridge.
