Police: Returning looted goods will not save you from prosecution

Police: Returning looted goods will not save you from prosecution

The FCT police command says returning goods looted from warehouses storing COVID-19 palliatives and other items may not shield one from prosecution.

The Commissioner of Police, FCT Command, Bala Ciroma, said this on NTA’s Good Morning Nigeria program on Wednesday.

Ciroma said stealing remains a crime in Nigeria and the return of looted goods doesn’t change the fact that a crime has been committed.

The police commissioner, however, said cases would be handled based on their merit.

Responding to a question, he said, “In a situation where people come to return goods, the fact remains did you commit an offense or not? We will get our legal experts to look at it and we will decide what to do with it.

“We will conclude our investigations and the legal experts will look at it accordingly but the fact remains that a crime has been committed.”

The CP stated that the police had been able to arrest several persons who looted warehouses and some properties had been recovered.

He promised residents that all those arrested would be prosecuted.

Ciroma said the police were still investigating the burning of vehicles in the Apo area of Abuja where hoodlums hijacked the #EndSARS protests last Monday.
