No fewer than seven people have been arrested in connection with the looting of Senator Teslim Folarin’s house in Ibadan on Saturday.
This was disclosed to journalists by the lawmaker’s elder brother, Yinka Folarin, on Saturday in Ibadan.
Glamtush on Saturday reported that some suspected hoodlums had on Saturday looted Folarin’s house, carting away items such as motorcycles, freezers, and more meant for his empowerment programme worth more than N200 million.
Yinka explained that the suspected hoodlums were arrested at the residence of the Senator by the Oyo State joint security task force ‘Operation Burst’.
He said: “Most of the equipment had been looted before the arrival of the security men, while seven of them, identified by the residents, were arrested at the scene.”
The lawmaker’s elder brother also disclosed that the looted items were meant for the 11 local government areas constituting Oyo Central Senatorial District.
According to him, the empowerment programme was postponed due to the ongoing End SARS protest.
