#EndSARS: Governor Ayade Orders House-To-House Search Of Looted Items In Cross River State

Looted Items In Cross River State - Governor Ayade Orders House-To-House Search
Governor Ben Ayade
Cross River State governor, Senator Ben Ayade has ordered security agencies in the state to search houses to recover looted items and take legitimate action to halt violence.

According to The Guardian, hoodlums and looters broke into over 35 government and private properties, looted several items and set some buildings ablaze between Friday and Saturday last week.

The governor had on Friday announced a 24-hour curfew in the state but still properties were looted and burnt down by hoodlums who hijacked the peaceful #EndSARS protest.

However, Ayade in a statement yesterday by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Mr Christian Ita, asked soldiers deployed to the State to take legitimate actions to halt the arson and carnage witnessed in some parts of Calabar.

“Following the deployment of more soldiers to Calabar to help quell the violence, Cross River Governor, Sir Ben Ayade has asked security agencies in the State to take legitimate actions to halt the arson and carnage witnessed in some parts of Calabar.

“The governor also wants the security agents to carry out a house to house search for looted property and arrest everyone involved in the looting of both public and private property in the state,” he said.

Ayade said he understands the pains of the people and there was a need to protect the welfare and properties of the people, as some persons are desperately trying to discredit the peaceful disposition of Cross Riverians. 

The Governor called on Cross Riverians to rise up and defend their land from criminal elements bent on destroying the image of the State. He added that the dusk to dusk curfew was still in place and everyone is advised to remain indoors as security personnel won’t tolerate non-compliance.
