Those arrested are: Tunji Oyedeji, Allison Ozin, Taiwo Olubodun and Awotunde Ahmed, while carrying out their illegal activities in Amuwo-Odofin area of the State.

The Transport Operations and Compliance Unit of the Ministry of Transportation had in February apprehended a group of miscreants in Igando axis, while extorting a tipper driver on his way to offload sand.

Condemning their actions, the Commissioner for Transportation, Dr. Frederic Oladeinde stated that continuous arrest of these miscreants demonstrated the state government’s resolve to ensure an enabling environment devoid of miscreants’ activities, saying, the ministry would intensify its sting operations across the State with a view to taming these urchins whose actions hindered economic development.
