Governor Obi said security report confirmed that the buildings were linked to heinous crime of kidnapping. He announced that the two buildings would henceforth be sealed off in line with the policy of the state on kidnapping whereby structures determined to be used by kidnappers are to be sealed off and confiscated by the State Government.

The Governor said the government would now determine the owners of the building, their sources of livelihood and degree of involvement in the crime and made clear that at the end of the investigation, government would either demolish the buildings or put them to government use.

Governor enjoined property owners to take full ownership of their buildings and remain security conscious to ensure that their facilities are not compromised.
