The owners of the items expressed appreciation to the state government for assisting them to get their property back.
Meanwhile, some owners were yet to show up to claim their property.
The state governor, Mr Gboyega Oyetola, said after the expiration of the amnesty given to the looters to return the items, anyone caught with stolen items would face the full wrath of the law.
Accolades for Aragbiji
The Governor commended the Aragbiji of Iragbiji, Oba AbdulRasheed Ayotunde Olabomi Odundun IV, for guarding against looting and destruction in his town and for arresting looters from neighboring town.
Oyetola commended the monarch for making Iragbiji peaceful by preventing hoodlums from overrunning the town during the unfortunate incident that happened in the State last Saturday.
The Governor, who spoke through his Chief Press Secretary, Ismail Omipidan, used the avenue to celebrate Oba Olabomi’s birthday.
He said: “On behalf of my family, the government and people of the State of Osun, I warmly felicitate you, our father, Oba AbdulRasheed Ayotunde Olabomi Odundun IV, the Aragbiji of Iragbiji, on the occasion of your birthday, today, October 29.
“As you celebrate, I am very sure your heart is filled with joy for what Almighty Allah has helped you to achieve all these years.
“Under your leadership, the town and the people of Iragbiji have continued to witness tremendous leap.
“Looking forward, I pray that all your dreams and wishes for the people of Iragbiji and the State of Osun come true.
“It is also my prayer that Almighty Allah continues to bestow on you good health and wisdom to continue to pilot the traditional affairs of Iragbiji land and offer valuable contributions to the development of our dear State and Nigeria in general,” Oyetola said.
