Scores of residents of Osun state who looted properties from government facilities and private businesses have responded to the amnesty directive of the state governor, Gboyega Oyetola by returning the items carted away.
The governor had on Sunday issued a 72-hour ultimatum for the looters to return their loots and get pardon.
During an on-the-spot assessment of some of the properties vandalised across the State, Governor Oyetola asked the looters to take the advantage of the amnesty or face the wrath of the law.
According to the  Chairman of the the Loots Recovery Committee and Deputy Chief of Staff to the Governor,  Prince Abdullah Binuyo, the State Government had received  a sizeable number  of  the looted properties in about 10 Local Government Areas of the State.

“Governor Oyetola, a man whose word is his bond, has promised amnesty to those who have surrendered looted properties in their possession so far. But there are still so much more out there yet to be recovered.
“The State Government is hereby imploring those who still have looted properties in their possession to surrender all they have illegally carted away to the security agencies, traditional rulers, local government chairmen and community leaders of their respective domains.
“The State Government wishes to reiterate that those who refused to take full advantage of the amnesty would be tracked and brought to justice.”
