Meanwhile, earlier reports on social media had claimed that the warehouse belonged to the National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA).

However, a source in NEMA who preferred to be anonymous, confirmed that the warehouse does not belong to NEMA but to the FCT Agriculture Department.

On inquiry, the Public Relations Officer of the FCT Agric secretariat, Zakari Aliyu, confirmed that the looted warehouse belongs to them.

Recall that Nigerians have been groaning over hardship and soaring prices of commodities occasioned by government policies, especially the removal of petrol subsidy and unification of forex rate.

In some states, many Nigerians have taken to the streets in protest of unbearable hardship due to high cost of commodities, especially food items.
