Following the breaking in and looting of COVID-19 palliatives around the country, President Buhari has urged parents and guardians to send back their wards if they come home with looted palliatives and also discourage them from stealing.

This was disclosed in a statement by the media aide to the president, Garba Shehu on Sunday. The president also urged the police and other security agencies to restore calm and normalcy as quickly as possible.

“A government that has launched a massive crackdown on corruption, brought in strong laws for a decisive battle against corruption, pursues loot recovery at home and abroad, and taken strong decisions against those who thought they were above the law, will not fold its arms when an otherwise legitimate and peaceful protest is turning into free-for-all vandalism and looting.

While the administration has, for its part, blocked so many means of looting public money in a war against corruption, it is the expectation that all civil authorities, community and religious leaders in the country must rise against the organised looting and plunder we are witnessing in parts of the country.

Families must turn back children who bring home unaccounted goods, in the same way wives must ask their husbands to return looted items brought home.”

The president said the incidents of vandalism and looting do not reflect well on the country’s image and should not be supported by reasonable members of the society.
