Senator Folarin said:
Looted materials included over 350 motorcycles, 400 deep freezers, 350 generators, grinding machines, sewing machines, hairdressing and barbing salon materials, vulcanising machines and many more.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng had previously reported that hundreds of youths on Friday, October 23, burst the Cocoa House in the Ede area of Osun state and looted various food items kept in it.
