Osun State governor, Mr. Gboyega Oyetola has said there would be no extension of amnesty beyond the 72 hour earlier announced for looters to return stolen items.


The Governor spoke during an interview with journalists at the Government House in Osogbo, shortly after inspection of some stolen items returned by hoodlums who attacked public and private facilities last weekend.

He told journalists that he had been briefed that the returned loots represent about 20 per cent of the total stollen items, thereby urging those who are yet to heed to the call to so do within the next 24 hours.


Governor Oyetola warned that after the expiration of the 72 hour amnesty as announced, government would go after the looters and make them face the wrath of the law.


“Don’t forget that there are video evidences of all that happened, so it is not possible for anyone to get with those loots. We are giving them grace of the remaining 24 hours to return the stollen items, otherwise we will go after them and make them face justice”, the Governor warned”


Twenty four hours is enough time for them to return the loots. Those looters are here in the State. We are not asking them to bring it here, they can even put them in from of their house and we will come and pick them. We are not going to extend the amnesty beyond the 72 hours” .


On the curfew imposed on all parts of the State, the Governor said he would meet with Security Chiefs to review the curfew and come out with a resolution.


Oyetola noted that the level of compliance has been very impressive and if it could be maintained there was no point preventing people from going about their normal daily activities.


“I m impressed by the level of compliance by our people, once peace can be maintained, there is no need to prevent people from their daily activities”, he said.


“we will meet with heads of security agencies in the State tomorrow, to review the current security situation in the State & thereafter consider relaxing the curfew. The curfew wasn’t imposed to inflict hardship on our people but to return normalcy to the State”.
