No fewer than four armed thugs have been arrested in Osogbo, Osun State capital, by men of the Joint Task Force.
The armed thugs were reportedly sent to disrupt the forthcoming People’s Democratic Party’s Zonal Congress scheduled to hold in Osogbo today Monday 12 April 2021.
The gang leader, identified as Tiri Olowoposi and his men were apprehended by the Police force with live ammunition.
Narrating his experience, an anonymous member of the party said, “The boys went to the hotel to ask for food, then Olowoposi and his boys came and rounded them up. But, fortunately, Policemen got to know about the illegal arrest and went to rescue them at the hotel.
“On sighting the arrival of policemen the thugs led by Olowoposi and his boys wanted to run but they were overpowered and arrested.” The source confirmed.
Among exhibits found and recovered from them are live ammunition, one pump action rifle and charms.
