The youths, numbering over 40 had invaded the area on Saturday morning and made attempts to gain entry into the building to evacuate palliatives warehouse in Abuja, placed by the Federal Capital Territory Administration FCTA.

Men of the Federal Capital Territory, FCT, Command of the Nigeria Police Force has foiled an attempt by some youths to break into a warehouse at the Arts and Culture building in Area 10, Garki.

However, a detachment of policemen were on hand to disperse them with gunshots and teargas canisters.

It was gathered that the said warehouse contains only bottled water as other palliatives had since been distributed.
