The Adamawa State house Ad-hoc committee on assessment of damages on public and private property has today paid a working visit to the Federal Road Safety Corps (GRSC) to ascertain the level of looting and destruction wrought on the command by vandals and looters.

The chairman of the Ad-hoc committee and member representing Gombi state constituency, Hon. Japhet Kefas said such level of destruction is highly reprehensible.

He said the assembly will do everything possible within its purview to ensure that such ugly scenario does not repeat itself through the enactment of laws that will ensure such federal government establishments in the state are adequately guarded.

Kefas urged the people of the state to be law abiding and urged them to guard against any untoward action against public and private property as the people will always be at the receiving end of such ugly incidents.

Also responding, the state commandant of the corps, Ameh Ocheja thanked the assembly for its concern over the fate that befell his office.

He noted that almost every working tool was destroyed during the looting and vandalization bazaar as a result of which the office has been turned to a shadow of its former self.

Ocheja called on the people to be law abiding and desist from damaging such properties because the effect will bounce back on them.
