Muritala Ibrahim, an Abuja-based businessman, who owns the warehouse looted by a mob in Abuja, has spoken out over the incident.

On Sunday, a group of angry residents at the nation’s capital looted a warehouse stocked with grains in Abuja, believing it to be belonging to the National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA). But the agency denied ownership of the looted warehouse.

According to Leadership News, in an interview with BBC Hausa, Ibrahim said he stocked assorted grains worth millions of naira in the warehouse.

“I had over 550 bags of rice, 550 bags of sugar, and 200 bags of beans, all totalling N210 million. What we managed to recover was only about N90million,” he lamented.

He explained further that upon receiving a sudden call about the attempted break-in into the warehouse by the mob, he rushed to the scene and saw the crowd, hence he became helpless.

“I went to report to the Police, but they were not around, so I sought help from my friends, The owner of the warehouse had already arrived before me and was trying his best but to no avail,” he added.

Meanwhile, the FCT Police Command said it arrested 15 suspects connected to the attack and looting of the warehouse in Gwagwa area of the Territory on Sunday.
