Looting: NEMA begs military to safeguard warehouse

The National Emergency Management Agency, NEMA, has requested military support to avert any security breach at its facilities in Kaduna.

NEMA North West Zonal Coordinator, Mr Imam Garki, made this appeal during a visit to the Commanding Officer of 2 Battalion Nigerian Army, on Tuesday in Kaduna.

He said the visit was to boost security at various warehouses, following the recent incident of hoodlums attacking government facilities to cart away food items and other valuables.

“We are here to solicit for military support to have a standby security personnel position to safeguard the agency’s warehouse facilities,“ he said.

The coordinator, who was represented by Abdulkadir Mohammed, Head of Unit, Search and Rescue of the agency, stressed that the agency has an existing working relationship with the Nigerian Army, which serves as one of the Disaster Response Units (DRUs) of the agency.

Responding, Lt.-Col. Abdulqadir Abdullahi, Commanding Officer 2 Battalion Nigerian Army, assured the agency of the Army`s relentless cooperation in dealing with the current situation.

The Director-General, Mr Mustapha Ahmed, directed Zonal Directors and Heads of Operations to strengthen security in and around NEMA offices and warehouses nationwide.
