Breaking News, Centre For Anti-corruption And Open Leadership Burgled By Unknown Persons.



The Centre for Anti-corruption and Open leadership has been burgled by unknown persons. Here is a

Press Release


The Centre for Anti-Corruption and Open Leadership, CACOL’s National Secretariat located within the Humanity Centre, 610, Lagos-Abeokuta Expressway, Ijaye Bus stop, Ijaiye-Ojokoro, was burgled during night raid by yet to be identified marauders early this morning.

In a release issued by CACOL and signed by Adegboyega Otunuga, the anti-corruption organization’s Coordinator, Media and Publications on behalf of its Executive Chairman, Mr. Debo Adeniran, he stated, “The Humanity Centre that houses many civil society organizations, including the Centre for Anti-Corruption and Open Leadership, CACOL, was raided earlier today after the office closed for the day’s commitments and closed the building late in the night. Apparently sensing the porosity of the entrance gate to the building and probably with an insider knowledge of the absence of some of the occupants of nearby apartments, staffers of the organization were confronted with broken doors, louvres, etc., before they could gain access to the upper floor of the storey building where valuable documents, many laptops, a BLU (Bold Like Us) Android telephone, and many other items as listed underneath were carted away by the marauders, whose other intentions (aside the clear stealing) remain sketchy as at the time of going to press:

Stolen Items
• 3 (Three) laptop system inside the Head of Centre (HOC) Office
• Bottles of Hennessy and Andre wine
• 3 (Three) other laptops worth Hundredth of thousandth Naira used by the Coordinator of Admin. & Programmes, CAP, Assistant Research and Documentation (R&D), Charger to the Laptop
• Android Handset (BLU), belonging to the Coordinator, Media and Publications (CMP) which he forgot in the office
• Infinix Note phone
• IPod & Charger
• Old Starcom Modem
• HOC personal Car’s Documents
• Staff File
• Project Proposal File
• Original Working File of the Head Of Centre
• Ten thousand Naira (N10, 000) cash stolen from the Head Of Centre’s office

In their bid to gain entrance to the Administrative floor and have access to other valuables and vital documents, they broke the entrance door after climbing the wall and damaged shelves, broke into wardrobes that housed some vital files and carted away whatever they found worthwhile of their nefarious motives; some of which we are yet to ascertain.

The Executive Chairman further remarked, “I am still amazed at the manner of desperation that could warrant this kind of burglary into a Human Rights’ office where you could hardly find raw cash, though the laptops and other vital items stole could be worth millions of Naira when their costs are aggregated. It only goes to show how shameless and conscienceless many have fallen in their nefarious acts. Though, we have formally lodged a complaint to the Ijokoro station of the Nigerian Police over the burglary and stealing, we only hope such elements would desist from their evil ways before they inevitably meet with their nemesis.”
