The state Police Commissioner, Ahmed Iliyasu, disclosed that nine exotic cars were recovered from the suspects. The CP said the gang leader, identified as Ismaila Adeosun, had been earlier arrested by operatives of the Inspector-General of Police (IGP) Response Team for a robbery incident.
Meanwhile, Adeosun’s siblings, Tobi and Yetunde as well as two nationals of the neighbouring Benin Republic, Dele Obey (who poses as a Yoruba king) and Bayo Quaheeb, were later apprehended by policemen from the state. Also among the arrested suspects are 27-year-old Olalekan Olawale, Danladi Isah, 25; Oluwatosin Abayomi and Abel Womiloju.
Weapons recovered from the suspects, according to Iliyasu, include two AK47 rifles with 50 rounds of ammunition, four locally made pistols with 21 live cartridges and one pump action gun with 12 live cartridges.
Olawale confessed to being gay and that he used to sleep with two Yahoo boys for a fee of N50,000 per night. Five minutes after divulging this information, he started vomiting blood. He claimed to have sworn to an oath never to divulge the information and that was the reason why he was vomiting blood. He was quickly rushed to the hospital where he was treated.
