Oyo security outfit recovers 23 phones from suspect
Oyo State joint security task force, Operation Burst, yesterday, recovered stolen Apple phones from a suspect at Sabo area, a few days to New Year celebration.
The security outfit said the recovery was made during raids on black spots and hideouts for criminals in Ibadan.
Director-General of Operation Burst, Colonel James Oladipo (rtd), confirmed that about 23 Apple-phones were recovered from the suspect, who is now at large.
Oladipo said the recovery is part of the outfit’s efforts to protect life and property in the state, especially during ‘Ember months’.
According to him, the security outfit has been on the trail of criminals who have been terrorising citizens and residents at strategic locations, especially in the Sabo area of the state.
He added that a surveillance team of the joint security task force recently raided some ‘blackspots’ in Ibadan, where the Apple phones were recovered.
Oladipo urged victims who were recently robbed of their Apple-phones, otherwise known as I-Phones within Ibadan to come forward with proof of ownership, to reclaim them.
While assuring the public of the task force’s immediate response to distress calls, the director general said the outfit is in synergy with other sister agencies and urged them to give useful information that will aid security agencies in performing their duties.
