The residents of Isuada community in Owo local government area of Ondo state have lamented incessant housebreaking, burglary and stealing and called on the police on the need to heighten security in the community.
Speaking on Thursday, a victim who identified himself as Mr. Suru and a staff of Rufus Giwa Polytechnic, Owo said he returned from his office and met his house broken into and valuable belongings carted away.
According to him, "this is what I saw today. They came in through one of the windows in my apartment, damaged the burglarproof to gain entry. For now, I have observed they carted away my laptop computer, an half bag of rice and a 5 liter-keg of groundnut oil.”
Mr. Suru, who said that was not the first time he would fall victim of such incident in the community, recalled that his house had once been burgled and the unknown perpetrators went away with two iPads and food stuffs.
Not fewer than two houses were reportedly broken into on Thursday morning in the community. Other people affected declined to speak with newsmen owing to the belief that the perpetrators might be living among them in the area.
One of the community elders, Elder Odetayo, said they were not unaware of the incidents, adding that they have called on the police to come to their aid by heightening security in the community.
