Adamawa state governor, Ahmadu Fintiri, has given people who looted COVID-19 relief items in the state warehouse 12 hours to return them or face dire consequences.
Recall that a mob stormed a warehouse in Yola, the state capital on Sunday, October 25, and looted all the palliatives.
In a state-wide broadcast on Tuesday, October 27, Governor Fintiri said any house where stolen items are found would be destroyed.
“This ultimatum will expire at 6am on Wednesday, 28th October, 2020, after which I will sign an executive order for a house-to-house search to commence by 7am of the same day. Part of the provision of the order is a sanction that will attract withdrawal of C-of-O and if necessary, demolition of every house that harbours any of the stolen properties. Law-abiding citizens should cooperate with the security agencies to ensure this is enforced.” Governor Fintiri said.
