The Kaduna government has commenced an operation to find looted COVID-19 relief materials in the state.
The operation is a house-to-house search by the police and other security agencies.
Nasir el-Rufai, Kaduna governor, confirmed the operation in a tweet on Tuesday.
There has been looting of public and private properties by mobs across the country.
The office of the National Agency for Food and Drug Administration and Control (NAFDAC) in Kaduna was one of the places hit by a mob in the state.
Besides stealing doors and office equipment, a mob carted away “expired and dangerous” drugs, the Kaduna government said.
While responding to another tweet, el-Rufai said his administration intends to bring anyone who has stolen any item to justice.
He said stealing and destruction of property will not be tolerated in Kaduna.
“KADUNA UPDATE: We intend to bring each and everyone of them to justice,” the governor tweeted.
“Stealing and destruction of property in the guise of #EndSARS will not be tolerated in Kaduna State. Thanks.”
