The committee set up by the Adamawa government to recover property looted by hoodlums during the EndSARS protest has recovered majority of the items, its Chairman, Alhaji Ahmad Bashir, has said.

Bashir, who is the Secretary to the State Government (SSG), disclosed this on Saturday in Yola while briefing newsmen on the success already recorded.

He said that the damage caused by the looters was shocking.

“The looters dismantled tractors and harvesters. Their attrocities have taken us 10 years backward,” he said.
