NEMA beefs up warehouse security nationwide, denies looting



Residents looting food and household items

The National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA) has refuted 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.

“This is to clarify that the looted warehouse does not belong to National Emergency Management Agency. However, the agency sympathises with the owners of the looted facility.

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