Residents Comply As Security Operatives Enforce Govt Curfew In Osun

Residents in different communities in Osun have complied as joint security personnel enforces the curfew imposed on the state.

Recall that the state governor, Gboyega Oyetola had declared another indefinite 24hours curfew in the state to curb looting of government and private of properties.

This is as youths in some communities in Osogbo helped police to arrest some hoodlums who looted government and private properties in the state.

AMILOADED recalled that hoodlums invade major towns in the state on Saturday vandalising and looting government and private properties.

Our correspondent who moved around the state capital on Sunday observed that only security operatives who set barricades on the highway were visible as residents stayed off the roads.

Meanwhile, about 30 persons have been arrested for allegedly looting public properties in the state.

Speaking with our correspondent, the leader of the youth group at Ogo-Oluwa area of the state capital, Isiaka Afolabi, said some of the suspects were arrested while trying to take their loots into the community.

“We seized the suspects with their loots and handed them over to the police because we cannot be encouraging looting of public property under the guise of protest. This is robbery and we will not condone it”, he said.

Some of the items recovered from them include refrigerators, air conditioners, upholstery, office equipment, household equipment among other things,” he said.

However, the Special Adviser to the Governor on Security, Mrs Abiodun Ige while parading the suspects frowned at the looting of public properties, saying the government would not condone any act of lawlessness under whatever guise.

“We will not condone looting of either government or individual properties as done by these suspects and they will face the full wrath of the law”, she said.
