According to the governor, failure to abide by the directive will lead to the prosecution of anyone arrested for the act.
Speaking with newsmen on Sunday during an assessment tour of some of the locations attacked, he warned the culprits to surrender all stolen items to the security agencies, traditional rulers, local government chairmen and community leaders close to them
He noted that defaulters would be tracked and brought to justice, while those who embraced it would be forgiven.
Oyetola also sympathised with victims of the lootings and promised them government’s support.
“What I witnessed here today is not a question of hoodlums, but armed robbers. They have removed all the machines here. It is very unfortunate. I can say categorically that End SARS protest is not what we are seeing here today. This is pure looting”, Oyetola fumed.
