Police Alerts Oyo Residents on Burglars’ New Mode of Operation
Commissioner of Police in Oyo State, Mr. Shina Olukolu, has alerted the public to the new mode of operation by some criminally minded people in gaining entrance to people’s homes.
Mr. Olukolu, while briefing newsmen, said the novel ways adopted by criminals included impersonation of Energy officials or State workers.
He advised the public to ensure that strangers showed genuine identification before being allowed entrance into homes.
Mr. Olukolu stated further that most of the suspected burglars in police custody, confessed to gaining entrance through pretence, and that the house owners always made it easy for them by believing the lies.
The commissioner therefore, urged the public to be security conscious and always notify security agencies in case of any emergency for quick response.
