The state Commissioner of Police, Salihu Garba, who confirmed the arrest of the vehicles laden with arms, said the arrests were made separately on Friday and yesterday, adding that he had despatched men from the Criminal Investigation Department (CID) to go and bring the vehicles and suspects to the state headquarters of the command.

The police boss said investigations had commenced into the incident.

Police sources said one of the vehicles was a truck and was said to be coming from Burkina-Faso to Ibadan before officials of the Kosubosu Divisional Police Headquarters nabbed the driver alongside an accomplice.
