23 IPhones Recovered From Suspect As Operation Burst Raids C

Operation Burst, Oyo State

The Oyo State Joint Security Task Force, Operation Burst has recovered some stolen Apple phones from a suspect at the Sabo area of Ibadan a few days before the New Year celebration. 

The security outfit said the recovery was made during its raids on black spots and hideouts of criminals in Ibadan. 

Director-General of Oyo State Joint Security Task Force, Operation Burst, Colonel James Oladipo (rtd), confirmed that about twenty-three Apple phones were recovered from the suspect, who is now at large. 

Oladipo said that this was part of the outfit’s efforts to protect lives and property in the state especially during the ‘Ember months.

“We have 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 said. 

He said that a surveillance team of the Joint Security Task Force, recently, raided some blackspots in Ibadan where the Apple phones were recovered. 

Oladipo, therefore, called on victims who were recently robbed of their Apple phones, otherwise known as iPhones within Ibadan to come forward with proof of ownership to reclaim them. 

The Director-General, while assuring the public of the task force’s immediate response to distress calls, urged them to give useful information that will aid security agencies in performing their duties. 

Colonel Oladipo also added that the outfit is in synergy with other sister security agencies in the state.
