Minister of State for the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Mariya Mahmoud, has described the Sunday looting of a warehouse in the Gwagwa-Tasha by some residents as a criminal act that was beyond hunger.

Speaking after her assessment visit to Gwagwa-Tasha, she said: “We are here due to the unfortunate incident that happened early hours of yesterday, where hoodlums attacked this very warehouse and packed everything that is here, including the fence.

Not only the food items that are here, including the roofings, windows, and even the gates of this place and offices were all attacked.

You can see the level of damage. There is nothing that is left here, including machineries that are used for the processing of these things.

The way this thing happened actually is beyond hunger. This is a criminal act. Somebody that is hungry cannot move out to remove all the roofings that are here. All the doors, all the windows, and also the gates.
