Acting on the report, he added that the Divisional Police Officer, Agbara, SP Saleh Dahiru detailed crack detectives to unravel the mystery behind the sudden disappearance of the driver and the goods.

Oyeyemi said the team embarked on intelligence-based investigation and traced the driver and the truck to Lagos where he was promptly arrested with the empty truck.

He explained that during interrogation, the driver confessed that he diverted the goods to the receivers, who bought the goods from him at a give away price.

Meanwhile, the state Commissioner of Police, Edward Ajogun has ordered a  full investigation into the case with the view to recovering the remaining stolen goods, and charge the suspects to court for prosecution.
