97-year-old retired police officer robbed of phone, ATM cards in Ilaro

Father of Senator Adeola’s media aide

A burglar has broken into the Ilaro, Ogun State home of Josiah Odunaro, father of Kayode Odunaro, the media aide of Senator Solomon Adeola.

Mr Odunaro, in a post on Facebook on Thursday, blamed the incident on the shutdown of activities in the country over the coronavirus pandemic.

He said the burglar made away with the phone and wallet of his 97-year-old father, a retired police officer.

“COVID19 Shutdown Troubles: Unfortunately a burglar decided to burgle my father of over 97 years old Chief Josiah Odunaro, the Otun Ajiroba of Ilaro, of his phone and wallet containing at least his Union and Polaris Bank ATM cards and his Retired Police Officer’s ID,” Odunaro wrote.

The aide expressed worry over his aged father having to move around as coronavirus ravages.

“He is going round to the banks, Police and GSM providers to do the needful in this perilous time for his age at Ilaro,” he said.

“I leave the burglar to his fate for doing this to an old man at this time. This too shall pass and we SHALL overcome.”

Odunaro did not say if the incident was reported to the police.
