The police spokesman in the state, Abimbola Oyeyemi, on Thursday, told newsmen that, “The vehicle was stopped by policemen for routine check at about 11:30pm on November 39, but while the officers were asking questions from one of them who drove the car, the two brothers who were the occupants abandoned the car and took to their heels.
“They were hotly chased and apprehended by the policemen there and then and taken to Ewu-Oliwo Division for proper interrogation.”
