The governor said: “This ultimatum will expire at 6:00 a.m. on Wednesday, 28th October 2020, after which I will sign an Executive Order for a house-to-house search to commence by 7:00 a.m. of the same day.

“Part of the provision of the order is a sanction that will attract withdrawal of C-of-O and if necessary, demolition of every house that harbours any of the stolen properties. Law-abiding citizens should cooperate with the security agencies to ensure this is enforced.”
