Looters in Osun state have complied with governor Oyetola’s 72 hour ultimatum, as they have began to return items stolen from government facilities and private businesses.
Recall that Osun State governor, Gboyega Oyetola had given looters 72 hours ultimatum to return all looted properties to designated authorities.
He instructed them to return all looted items within 72 hours to security agencies, traditional rulers, local government chairmen or community leaders close to them.
The Chairman of the the Loots Recovery Committee, Prince Abdullah Binuyo have now confirmed that the State Government had received a sizeable number of the looted properties in about 10 Local Government Areas of the State.
In his words,
“In just 24 hours, many of the people in possession of looted properties are already responding to the Governor’s amnesty directives. The response has been encouraging and we commend the people who have responded so far,” he said.
“Governor Oyetola, a man whose word is his bond, has promised amnesty to those who have surrendered looted properties in their possession so far. But there are still so much more out there yet to be recovered.
“The State Government is hereby imploring those who still have looted properties in their possession to surrender all they have illegally carted away to the security agencies, traditional rulers, local government chairmen and community leaders of their respective domains. The State Government wishes to reiterate that those who refused to take full advantage of the amnesty would be tracked and brought to justice”, he added.
