Governor of Adamawa state, Ahmadu Fintiri, in a state-wide broadcast on Tuesday, October 27 has given a 12-hour ultimatum to all those who looted COVID-19 palliatives from the warehouses across the state to return them or face terrible consequence.
Recall that a mob stormed a warehouse in Yola, the state capital on Sunday, October 25, and looted all the palliatives.
The Governor made it clear that 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.” he said
