He said the hoodlums came into the apartment through the backyard after taking time to break the burglary window.
“It is the most shocking incident because the burglars came into the apartment when we have left the house for work which shows that they must have been monitoring our movement. They came in through the backyard where they damaged the burglary proof and entered through the window.
“They ransacked the whole room, scattered some of my documents in a most frightening way. In fact, it’s a direct attack. They stole two television sets (a 55 inches Hisense Curve tv and an LG 32 inches tv) while they also took away some vital documents.
“We have reported the case to the police in the Ijare Division and they have promised to ensure that they identified those who have perpetrated the evil act. I trust that the police would surely go after them”. Mr. Ajuwon added.
Confirming the incident, the Police Public Relations Officer, PPRO, in State, DSP Oluwafunmilayo Odunlami disclosed that the police have commenced investigation into the burglary case.
The PPRO also vowed that the perpetrators would soon be apprehended.
