FG urges youths to ‎stop looting, says it will hurt economy


The National Orientation Agency on Monday appealed to youths in the country to stop looting warehouses and other facilities.

NOA warned that looting would cause negative effects on the country’s economy.

The agency made this known in a series of tweets on Monday as the ‎looting of public and private properties continued in many parts of the country.‎

Governors are imposing curfew in their states in a bid to stop the wave of looting.

NOA, in a post titled ‘stop looting’, urged Nigerians to be patriotic.

The agency said, “#EndSARS protesters could not have envisaged looting of this magnitude, an act completely different from genuine agitations/demands of lawful protesters.

“Hurting businesses will traumatize owners with attendant negative effects on nation’s fragile economy.

“#COVID19 has affected the world economy beyond imagination of which #Nigeria is no exemption. Economy is in need of a quick restart, and any impediment can slow down economic recovery efforts. Looting businesses is an impediment to an already strained economy.

“Quite number of both public and private buildings have been vandalised and looted resulting in loss of unimaginable amount of money.

“We sympathise with business owners whose investments have been touched by vandals and looters.”
