The police command in Oyo state has arrested a soldier serving at 81 Battalion, Makola, Ibadan, for allegedly hijacking a fuel-laden truck along Akobo, Iwo road.

Abiodun Odunde, the commissioner of police in the state, made the disclosure in Ibadan while presenting the suspects to journalists at the command’s headquarters in Ibadan on Friday.

Odunde said the soldier and three others were arrested on November 11 along Akobo, Iwo road, Ibadan.

The commissioner said an investigation into the matter revealed that the gang was responsible for waylaying and subsequently hijacking trucks along the expressway.

“The gang led by the soldier hijacked a 40,000 litre truck with registration number ABJ 132XA at about 9:30 p.m. and abducted the driver and the conductor,” Odude said.

“They later took them to Omi-Adio after robbing them of their money and valuables and thereafter drove the truck to Akure/Ilesa road.

“The alarm raised by the victim attracted some members of the community who alerted the police that led to their arrest and also recovered the truck.”
