Two persons have been arrested for flying a drone over the house of a former Governor of Ogun State, Aremo Olusegun Osoba.
The young man and a lady were arrested for flying a drone over Osoba’s house located within Ibara GRA, Abeokuta, the Ogun State capital.
This was made known in a statement by one of the aides of the ex-governor, Adekunle Adeyemi;
The statement added that the two suspects, a lady and a young man, whose identities were not disclosed, were allegedly caught by the private security guards attached to Osoba’s house.
The suspects allegedly flew the drones to monitor activities in the compound.
Adeyemi said the drone was later shot down by Osoba’s security aides, adding that when the suspects were arrested, they could not give a coherent explanation for their action.
While describing the action as a breach of Osoba’s security, Adeyemi noted that a few years ago, unidentified people invaded a part of the same building and dug out buried armoured cables.
The aide 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 read;
“This will be another breach of security of Chief Osoba’s private security. A few years ago, unidentified persons invaded part of the compound and took reasonable time to dig out buried armored cables. This was done in most professional manner.
“It will also be recalled that sometime ago, two bungalows on the premises were vandalised by unidentified 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.”
