A 71-year old man, Peter Othormor, and 10 others have been arrested by operatives of the Federal Special Anti-Robbery Squad, FSARS, Lagos Island, Lagos, for allegedly diverting goods worth N40 million – entrusted in their care to deliver to a customer in Abuja – to Ibadan to sell. .

According to the police, trouble started for the suspects when Othormor was contacted by a clearing agent to help him look for a truck to convey about N40m goods from Kirikiri Phase 2, Apapa, Lagos to a customer in Abuja.

After the driver, now at large, loaded the goods and headed to Abuja, Othormor directed the driver of the truck to drive straight to a compound in Ibadan, Oyo State, and offload the goods for the alleged buyer.

Nemesis caught up with them while offloading the goods when a resident in the area who suspected their movement, tipped off the Deputy Commissioner of Police, DCP in charge of FSARS, Mr. Ibrahim Kaoje, and they were arrested.
