The Taraba state deputy governor, Haruna Manu, has urged Tarabans not to relent in their quest to always supply security agencies with useful information on how to nab criminal elements terrorising the state.
Manu, in a press statement signed by his senior special assistant on new media, Musleem Aruwa, in Jalingo, said the criminals involved in the recent looting should return such items or face the full wrath of the law.
The statement read in part, “There will be a free movement from 7:00am to 6:00pm only, while the remaining hours remain restricted. Government will continue to monitor the situation until normalcy is restored completely. Law-abiding citizens are advised to go about their legitimate businesses as government and other security agencies have adopted tougher safeguards to protect lives and property.
“Those who took part in the shameful looting of public and private property should return such items to their ward heads, village/Districts heads or the local government chairmen as these categories of leaders have been directed to collate these looted items for safekeeping so that they can be returned to government and other private businesses affected.”
