The Oyo State Police Command has busted a gang of armed robbers who specialized in intercepting and robbing trucks loaded with goods.
Police said the suspects operate by waylaying loaded lorries at hilly parts of the road or where there were potholes, after which they would hijack the lorry at gun point.
The Commissioner of Police in the state, Leye Oyebade, while parading the suspects in Ibadan, told journalists that men of Special Anti-Robbery Squad of the state command stationed at Oyo/Ogbomoso axis made the arrest on October 8, 2015.
An internet fraudster, Babatunde Abiola Fatai, was also paraded. The CP said Fatai was arrested in Ogbomoso and that various posh cars were recovered from him.
He said the criminal specialized in hacking into accounts of victims both in Nigeria and abroad and that his accomplices were still at large.
