Two criminals transporting illicit drugs have been arrested by the police in Ogun state during an ambush.

Men of the Ogun State Police Command have arrested three young men, who acted as fronts and agents used in the distribution illicit drugs.

The suspects ran into police ambush at Ijebu-Itele axis of the Benin/Shagamu Expressway in the early hours of Wednesday, August 8, 2018.

It was gathered that the interception of the Indian -laden truck was sequel to an intelligent report received by the Command to the effect that the suspects lived on running illegal errands of transporting and delivery of such hard drugs as Nicotine, Indian as well as dangerous weapons from Delta State, enroute Ogun, to Lagos State.

According to the state Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO) DSP Abimbola Oyeyemi, who in a press statement made available to this medium, “On the strength of the report, the Ogun State Commissioner of Police, CP Ahmed Iliyasu, directed the Officer-In-Charge Federal Special Anti-Robbery Squad (FSARS), Abeokuta, SP Uba Adams, to go after the suspects.

“In compliance with the CP’s directive, the operatives of the FSARS embarked on a technical-based investigation and profiling of the suspects, which enabled them to intercept them in a truck with registration number KPP 339 XD. On searching the vehicle, 40 bags of weeds suspected to be marijuana was recovered and the suspects were promptly arrested. The suspects are Frank Osai ‘m’39yrs, Elvis Okuse ‘m’ 25yrs and Kelvin Ogagaoghene ‘m’ 24yrs”, the PPRO said.
