- The state government handed over the recovered items to the owners on Thursday, October 29
- Abdullah Binuyo, the deputy chief of staff to the governor, said the looting was carried out in 14 out of 30 local governments in the state
Barely 72 hours after the Osun state government issued a stern warning to the looters of public and private businesses to return their loots, Governor Gboyega Oyetola has handed over the recovered goods to the owners.
The Nation reports that the governor returned the looted items to their owners on Thursday, October 29, in Osogbo, the state capital.
Legit.ng gathered that the special adviser on special duties to the governor, who is also the secretary of the ad-hoc committee on recovery of stolen items, Samson Owoyokun, said looting was carried out in 14 local governments.
Oyetola had imposed a curfew and he issued a 72-hour amnesty to people to return the looted items through traditional rulers and local government chairmen.
The belongings were handed over to the owners at the Government House, Oke-Fia, Osogbo by the deputy chief of staff to the governor, who is also the chairman of the loot recovery committee, Prince Abdullah Binuyo.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng had previously reported that the Osun state police command in collaboration with other security agencies in the state began a house to house search for looted items stolen by hoodlums under the guise of EndSARS protest.
It was reported that the operatives including the local police, codenamed Amotekun started combing the streets in order to reclaim the public space from the criminal elements.

In another report, the warning by President Muhammadu Buhari against looting public and private properties was ignored by the looters in Abuja.
Some hoodlums on Monday, October 26, invaded a warehouse in the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) where COVID-19 palliatives were stored.
The storehouse located in the Gwagwalada area council is owned by the agricultural and rural development secretariat of the FCT's administration.
