Must read

The National Emergency Management Agency, NEMA, has denied reports that its warehouse in the Federal Capital Terrritory, FCT, was looted by residents on Sunday.

AFRIPOST earlier reported that residents of the FCT on Sunday looted a NEMA warehouse, carting away bags of rice, beans and other foodstuff.

However, a statement by the NEMA Press Unit, which was posted on X, said the looted warehouse does not belong to the agency.

“The attention of the National Emergency Management Agency has been drawn to media reports on Sunday alleging that the Agency’s warehouse was looted by some hoodlums in Abuja.

“This is to clarify that the looted warehouse does not belong to NEMA. However, the Agency sympathizes with owners of the looted facility.

“To forestall any security breach at NEMA facilities, the Director General Mustapha Habib Ahmed has directed Zonal Directors and Heads of Operations to strengthen security in and around the Agency’s offices and warehouses nationwide,” the statement said.
