He said, “This is as a result of the recommendation of the commission that the government should take over all illegal lands and structures acquired by the administrations between 2006 and 2019.”

He said the current administration was not resting on its oars in recovering all the state’s stolen properties, especially those carted away by the previous administration.

The commissioner added that in line with the 3Rs mantra initiative of Governor Hope Uzodimma, the state must continue to work in line with the relevant laws and recommendations of government agencies and commissions no matter whose ox is gored.
