Breaking: Hoodlums raid another store in Abuja, cart away items

Hoodlums have raided the Federal Capital Territory Administration (FCTA) agric store located at Gwagwa-Tasha, in Abuja Municipal Area Council (AMAC), carting various items, such as bags of grains, sewing machines, mattresses, cartons of milk and tin tomatoes and other items.

Blueprint reporter gathered that the store, which is maintained by the Agriculture and Rural Development Secretariat (ARDS) of the FCTA is used for storage of agricultural products for sales to farmers, at subsidised rates, especially during the planting seasons.

However, the hoodlums, who invaded the facility, removed almost all the agricultural products in the store, even as security agencies, who rushed to the area, could not help the situation.

But calm returned only when another detachment of security personnel, including the army and police were drafted to the area, who dispersed the looters with teargas and gunshots.

As at the time of filling this report, no arrest has been made.

Attempt to speak with the head of media ARDS, Zakari Aliyu, failed, as he did not pick his calls.
