Some residents of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) have invaded the warehouse reportedly belonging to the National Emergency Management Agency of Nigeria (NEMA), looting foodstuffs as economic hardship assumes a new dimension.

The warehouse, situated in Karimo, Phase 3 Region of the FCT area of Abuja, was looted on the morning of Sunday, March 3, 2024, reports stated.

The spokesperson for the FCT command, Josephine Adeh, who confirmed the incident, said the deployment has been made to the scene and “The situation is now under control.”

The incident is the latest in a string of events that highlighted how desperate Nigerians have become due to the prevailing economic crisis.
