”It is our fervent wish that the palliatives reach every household in the State. While we continue to investigate and prosecute these hoodlums, I want to assure you that our planned rollout of the palliative is still on course irrespective of this major setback.”

Fintiri called on parents to wake up to their responsibilities and cooperate with government as investigation is ongoing.

“I am calling on parents to handover their deviant wards and the stolen goods to the security agencies or equally face the wrath of the law.

“We must collectively cooperate to deal with these hoodlums who have found it convenient to break into our warehouses and loot at their own convenience.

”If we don’t do this today, chances are that their next destination would be our homes and businesses.” 

Fintiri directed the hoodlums to return all items looted from the warehouses to the nearest Police Stations before noon on Tuesday, Aug. 1.

“After which I will sign an Executive Order for a house-to-house search to commence at the expiration of the deadline.

“Part of the provisions of the order is a sanction that will attract withdrawal of C of O and if necessary, demolition of every house that habours any of the stolen property”, he said.

The governor urged law abiding citizens to cooperate with security agencies to ensure that the executive order was enforced.
