The National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA), has reacted to the burning down of two ambulances at the Agency’s Emergency Response and Ambulance Bays (ERABs) in Abuja. They have accused the Islamic Movement in Nigeria (Shiite) of being responsible.
It was reported that the (NEMA) outpost was set ablaze by Shi’ite members in Abuja. This happened due to the clash between the Shiites and the Police at the the Federal Secretariat in Abuja on Monday.
NEMA’s Head of Media and Public Relations, Malam Sani Datti had confirmed the incident in Abuja in a statement “This is to confirm that ERABs of the NEMA located on Ahmadu Bello Way beside the federal secretariat was attacked today with two vehicles burnt down.
“The attack was carried out by members of Islamic Movement of Nigeria commonly known as Shi’ites,” he said.
He also went ahead to explain that the vehicles that had been burnt down were a multi-purpose Response Intervention Van and a Mobile Intensive Care Unit, which was a life support ambulance.
He also revealed that the damaged vehicles were very expensive and would cost a lot of money to replace.
