Mr. Tosin Ajuwon, Daily Times Newspaper Correspondent, Ondo State

On November 9, 2021, a group of persons suspected to be hoodlums burgled the apartment of Mr. Tosin Ajuwon, the Ondo State correspondent of Daily Times newspaper and took away important documents and other valuable property.
The hoodlums broke into Tosin’s apartment located at Irese Community in Ifedore Local Council of Ondo State through the window after he and members of his family had left for work and made away with two sets of television, in addition to his documents.    
Tosin described the incident as shocking, frightening and a direct attack on him explaining that the hoodlums came into the apartment through the backyard after breaking the burglar-proof iron rods in his window.  
He said: “It is the most shocking incident because the burglars came into the apartment when we had left the house for work, which shows that they must have been monitoring our movement. They came in through the back, where they damaged the burglary proof and entered through the window.  
They ransacked the whole room, scattered some of my documents in a most frightening way. In fact, it’s a direct attack. They stole two television sets (a 55 inches Hisense CurveTv and an LG 32 inches Tv) while they also took away vital documents.” 
It is not clear why the burglars raided his apartment. The matter was reported at the Ijare Police Division and the state Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), DSP Oluwafunmilayo Odunlami, who confirmed the incident, said investigation has begun, promising that the perpetrators would be brought to book.
