Osun State government on Thursday handed over recovered public and private looted by hoodlums to their owners.
Owners of the looted items were also made to provide proofs of ownerships and means of identifications sign a bond with the police in case any other claimants resurface, before collection.
Speaking at the state Government House where the items were deposited, the secretary of the state ad-hoc committee for the recovery of the items, Samson Owoyokun said that the state government had earlier carried out enumeration in collaboration with the police to officially itemize property lost by individuals and government in order to prevent wrong claim of ownership.
He said 14 local government areas were involved and house-to-house search which had commenced in those areas would continue to ensure recovery of more loots.
He added that information about where some loots were kept is available and the Joint Task Force and the Amotekun Corps were already in search of them.
One of those who received some of their looted items was the executive secretary, Osun Health Insurance Scheme, OHIS, Dr Adeniyi Oginni, who hinted that 15 percent of the scheme’s stolen properties had been identified.
“About 15 percent has been recovered, though some of the electronics like flat TV are spoilt.
“There is a very critical aspect of our properties that have not been recovered.
“Our server, all our computers (both desktops and laptops), we have not seen any one of them.
“We are appealing to the residents of the state to quickly notify the law enforcement agents whenever they see anybody trying to sell electronics equipment,” he said.
He expressed sadness that many properties of the scheme were also vandalised during the attack on Saturday, describing the 72-hour amnesty as a very critical factor in the recovery of the stolen items.
