In Oyo: Police parade suspects who diverted N40m generators, oil

The Oyo State Police Command, on Monday, paraded suspected armed robbers, who allegedly diverted goods valued at N40m to an unknown destination.

The state Commissioner of Police, Shina Olukolu, said his men were alerted that suspected highway robbers had ambushed a truck laden with generators and engine oil in the Akinyele area of the city.

One of the suspects, Taiwo, the receiver of the goods, said she was promised N1m if the deal succeeded, adding that initially, she was not aware of the nature of the goods.

The driver of the truck, Abiodun, said the generators and oil were being conveyed from Lagos to Port Harcourt, Rivers State, before he diverted the goods to Oyo State, noting that his own share would have been N1m if the deal had succeeded.(Punch)
