The Nigeria Ports Authority (NPA) has claimed that the agency lost a total of N807 million to the vandalism that occurred in the aftermath of the #EndSARS protest. 

This was according to the NPA managing director, Hadiza Usman during the budget defence session before the Senate Committee on Maritime in the National Assembly yesterday. 

According to her, the money would be used to rebuild structures that were gutted by fire as well as to replace vehicles that were damaged and stolen. 

In her words, "As it relates to every other aspect of the building, we had made a detailed submission, attaching a bill of quantity of ₦807 million as the cost of rehabilitating the aspect of the building that were set on fire,” she said.

“As it relates to our motor vehicles, 27 vehicles were set on fire. Three vehicles were stolen, one of the vehicles was recovered.

“We are going through the process of insurance claims to see what portion of insurance were made available because the Nigerian Ports Authority meets up with all its insurance obligations.”
