NEMA Denies Looting Of Its Warehouse In Abuja


The National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA) has debunked reports circulating in some quarters that its warehouse was looted by some hoodlums in Abuja on Sunday.

NEMA spokesperson, Manzo Ezekiel, in a statement on Sunday, confirmed that the looted warehouse is not affiliated with the agency, but sympathised with the owners of the looted facility.

On Sunday, some residents of Abuja raided a warehouse belonging to the Federal Capital Territory’s Department of Agriculture, looting foodstuffs and other items stored in the facility.

The FCT Agric secretariat’s Public Relations Officer, Zakari Aliyu, confirmed to Newsmen via text message that the looted warehouse belonged to their agency.

He, however, did not disclose further details on the looted warehouse.


NEMA said it has taken measures to safeguard its facilities nationwide.

“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,” NEMA said.
