Shittu said the northerners had been handed over to the police for investigation. He said: “While on duty, our men saw a trailer filled with motorcycles and we trailed the vehicle to Ajebandele in Ile-Ife.

“They stopped along Ajebandele road and while searching the vehicle, we realised the trailer was not carrying only motorcycles, but 21 young men hid in the truck.

“We asked them where they were going, but they did not know their destination as some of them said Zamfara State.

“After cross-examination by our men, we transferred them to the State Police Investigation Department in Osogbo for subsequent investigation and interrogation,” Amitolu explained.

The state government had alerted members of the public that some criminal elements had infiltrated the commercial transport operators in the state and had been attempting to kidnap unsuspecting citizens.
