The Commissioner of Police, FCT Command has said that those who return looted goods from warehouses storing COVID-19 palliatives and other items might not be free from being prosecuted.
Speaking during an interview with NTA on Wednesday Ciroma stated that stealing remains a crime in Nigeria.
According to him, returning a looted item doesn’t change the fact that a crime has been committed.
“In a situation where people come to return goods, the fact remains did you commit an offence 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,” he said.
