The residents carted away foodstuffs and other items.

Personnel of the Nigeria Police Force have been deployed to the area to disperse the looters and secure the building.

The spokesperson for the FCT Police Command, Josephine Adeh, confirmed the incident saying that the situation had been brought under control.

“The situation is now under control,” she said.


The National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA) has clarified media reports suggesting the looting of its warehouse in Abuja, asserting that the warehouse in question does not belong to the agency.

This was made known in a statement by the NEMA Press Unit on Sunday which was shared on the agency’s X account.

The statement said, “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.
