Osun State Governor, Gboyega Oyetola, has warned looters still in possession of stolen items to return them before the government commences house-to-house search by security agents on Thursday.

Oyetola who made this known while inspecting some of the recovered loots deposited at the parking lot of the Government House, Osogbo, said about 20 per cent of the looted items have been returned and enjoined other looters to take advantage of the hours left in the amnesty period saying that there would be no extension.

According to a statement by his office, the governor stressed that those who refused to embrace the offer of the government would face the full wrath of the law.

“For us, this voluntary return of the of loots is a welcome development. The intention is to assist the various owners of these items to have the opportunity of getting their properties and belongings because we believe strongly that it is going to be a big setback for them to have all these properties lost”, Oyetola said.

He further warned the looters, saying, “What they should realise is that, there are a lot of video clips and video coverage for all the looting that took place in the state. The implication of this is that there is no hidden place for anybody that looted anything in Osun.

“So, it is in their interest to voluntarily return all the items or face the wrath of the law after the expiration of the 72hours. We are not going back after this period. We are going to go from house to house to retrieve the looted items.”

Rampaging hoodlums had of recent ransacked public and private properties in the state under the guise of the #EndSARS protests against police brutality.
