Oyetola, who issued the ultimatum on Sunday during an assessment tour of some of the locations attacked, told the culprits to surrender all stolen items to the security agencies, traditional rulers, local government chairmen and community leaders close to them.

The governor warned that those who refused to honour the ultimatum would be tracked and brought to justice, while those who embraced it would be forgiven.

Governor Oyetola also sympathised with victims of the lootings and promised them government’s support.

“What I witnessed here today is not actually a question of hoodlums, but armed robbers. They have actually removed all the machines that are here.

“It is very unfortunate. What I have seen here is massive looting, armed robbery and stealing of the highest order.

“I can say categorically that #EndSARS protest is not what we are seeing here today. This is pure looting and it is all over.

“As a government, we will look at the possible ways of bringing the victims back to life through our efforts and the intervention of the Federal Government,” he said.

Meanwhile, the National Agency for Food & Drug Administration and Control (NAFDAC) has warned residents of Kaduna State that the looted items can cause serious illness and death if used.
