The Abia State Government has expressed sadness over the destruction and looting of Abia State Dental Center, Aba, and Primary Health Authority office in Aba South LGA.
The State Commissioner for Informer, John Okiyi Kalu, alleged that the properties were destroyed by hoodlums who hijacked the peaceful #EndSARS protests.
Kalu said vaccines, X-ray machines, sterilizers, air conditioners, fans and other equipment like disposables and consumables were carted away.
The Commissioner 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 0803 764 9306 with information on the location of the items.
“Kindly note that most of the Primary Health Care and Dental equipment are trackable and will certainly be recovered in due course if not voluntarily returned.
“Members of the public are hereby warned not to buy or use any of the stolen items or procure such items from unauthorised persons to avoid getting into trouble with the law.”
