The National Asset and Government Property Commission (NAGPC) has issued a stern warning, saying it will not tolerate anyone who engages in deliberate destruction of public properties; particularly at a time when the government is severely handicapped in providing the needs of the people in the midst of the COVID-19 fight.

In his statement, Chairman of the Commission, Abu HindoloMoseray expressed concern over the recent spate of arson attacks on key government Facilities, including the administrative building at the Pademba Road Correctional Centre, the Lunsar  Police Station in Port Loko District and the Tombo Police Station in the Western Area Rural District.

Charged with the control, identification, maintenance and improvement of all government assets and property, the Chairman noted that the number of assets currently available for use by government institutions is inadequate; thereby warranting stiff action and punishment for any dastardly act of violence which only compound an already difficult situation the government is trying to handle.

“The Commission is yet to estimate the quantum of financial loss resulting from these arson attacks. The government currently has other priorities and cannot afford to tolerate such wanton destruction to public property under any circumstance,” Chairman of the Commission, Abu HindoloMoseray warned.

The NAGPC statement warned all those who have been embarking on such criminal acts to desist forthwith whilst investigations on the arson attacks continue.

According to the Chairman of the Commission, Abu HindoloMoseray the NAGPC is encouraging members of the public to provide relevant information relating to the alleged arson attacks.
