Looted items in Plateau state are being returned by residents who carted them away after the #EndSARS protests were hijacked by hoodlums nationwide.

The repentant persons were led to the new Government House in Rayfield Jos by a popular evangelist of the Church of Christ in Nations (COCIN) Rev. Ezekiel Dachomo, who explained that they made the confession during a prayer revival organised by the church.

The clergyman said over two thousand people came forward after hearing the gospel where he preached against the recent looting and vandalism which affected public and private properties in the state.

Some Nigerians have been reacting to the news on social media.

Gualley Praise asked on Twitter:

“Why is it that no matter what, the politicians from Plateau state don't usually have this kind of repentant heart to return the looted public funds?”

Rabe Iro Mani wrote:

“This is a good omen for Nigeria so the big looters should follow suit and return their loot.”

Victor Mbogu wrote:

“Sounds laughable! Does it mean they've kept those looted palliatives in their homes while waiting for the government to give a return order? Hope the government will also return the looted funds and also seek forgiveness? What a country!”

Ezeanaka Nathan wrote:

“When will our politicians beg for forgiveness for hoarding those palliatives?”

Recall that no fewer than 20 people in Joi village in Riyom local government area of Plateau state were recently treated for food poisoning after taking a local drink made from millet.
