Two suspects were said to have been arrested on Tuesday for flying a drone over the house of a former governor of Ogun State, Aremo Olusegun Osoba, located within the Ibara, GRA, Abeokuta.
This was contained in a statement signed by one of the aides of the ex – governor, Adekunle Adeyemi, a copy of which was made available to our correspondent.
The statement added that two suspects , a lady and a young man , whose identities were yet to be unravelled, were allegedly caught by the private security operatives attached to his house, using the drone to monitor activities in Osoba’ s compound.
Adeyemi said the drone was later shot down by the security operatives , and the suspects could not give a coherent explanation for their action when apprehended.
He described the incident as another in a series of the security breach to Osoba’s residence.
Adeyemi said the ex – governor just returned from a trip to the United Kingdom on Tuesday and was in his Abeokuta home , in preparation for a meeting to discuss a hitch- free conduct of the presidential primary of the All Progressives Congress scheduled for Friday.
The statement reads:
“This will be another series of a breach of the security of Chief Osoba’ s home . A few years ago , unknown persons invaded part of the compound and took a reasonable time to dig out buried armored cable. This was done in a most professional manner.
“It would also be recalled that sometimes ago, two bungalows within the premises were vandalised by unknown hoodlums.
“Another breach was when insulting graffiti was written on the fence of Chief Osoba’ s house, not too long ago.
“Those involved in the latest action have been handed over to an arm of the government for investigations. ”
When contacted , the State Police Public Relations Officer , Abimbola Oyeyemi , said he was not aware of such arrest being made.
He said , ” I am not aware of such arrest .”
