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 .
A statement signed by Osoba’s aide, Adekunle Adeyemi, said the suspects, a lady and young man, were caught late Tuesday afternoon, after the drone was shot down.
Adeyemi said the suspects could not give 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 breach of security of Chief Osoba’s private security. Few years ago, unknown persons invaded part of the compound and took reasonable time to dig out buried armored cable. This was done in most professional manner.
“It would also be recalled that sometimes ago, two bungalows within the premises were vandalized by unknown hoodlums. Another breach was when insulting graffiti were written round 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 government agencies for investigations”.
When contacted, the spokesman of the Ogun state Police Command, Abimbola Oyeyemi said he was not aware of the development.
