Some unidentified residents of Ilorin have
begun to return the looted items from Shoprite, Kwara Agro Mall, and other shops to various locations in Ilorin, Kwara state capital.
Meantime, the state government has
reviewed the curfew in Ilorin metropolis to between 8 p.m to 6 a.m.
Already, Governor Abdulrazaq held
meetings with the victims of the looted
items and take stock of their items, with view to help them back to business.
Vanguard reliably gathered that the recent
parade and prosecution of the suspected
looters by the police prompted the voluntary returns of the looted items to designated places as suggested by the police commissioner, Mr Kayode Egbetokun.
Egbetokun had said that whoever that voluntarily return the looted items in
his/her Magajis place, residents of community heads, by the roadside among other options would be spared of police arrest, and paraded before journalists.
Consequently, many looted items were
secretly returned to the designated places, while the police comb the state
capital for those who might not obey the directive.
Security operatives in the state have arrested 144 suspects in connection with last Friday looting of government private property in Ilorin, the state capital.
The state Commissioner of Police, Mr Kayode Egbetokun, who paraded the suspected Looters in Ilorin recently said that the arrest of the suspects was as result of combined efforts of security agencies operating in the state.
Egbetokun, who confirmed that two government warehouses and lots of privately owned property were attacked by the hoodlums, said that the violence was well coordinated and led by some hardened criminals.
