The State Commissioner for Information and Strategy, John Okiyi Kalu appealed to those who looted the items to return them within seven days to the relevant offices or call the Special Adviser to the Governor on Health Matters, Mr Joe Chinwendu on 0803764 9306 with information on the location of the items.
