Adamawa State Governor Umaru Fintiri has given a 12-hour ultimatum to the hoodlums involved in the looting of public and private warehouses and government agencies to return the looted items or be ready to face the consequences of their actions.

The Governor gave the order during a state-wide broadcast where he also lamented the loss witnessed in the state in the past few days to looters.

He also announced the arrest of over 100 suspects involved in the looting, condemning their action in strong terms.
