The state government has, however, appealed to those who looted the items to return them to designated government offices or call the Special Adviser to the Governor on Health Matters, Mr Joe Chinwendu.

The government warned members of the public 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.

The warning was contained in a release issued by the State Commissioner for Information, Chief John Okiyi Kalu, in Umuahia, on Friday.

“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”.
