The state’s Police Public Relations Officer, Olabisi Ilobanafor, said both men disguised to commit the crime.
Ilobanafor said, “The two armed robbers, who disguised as passengers, boarded an Ibadan bound 18-seat passenger bus from Sango-Otta with the intention to rob travellers of their belongings during the journey.

“At a secluded area just after the RCC work station along the expressway, the robbers showed their true colours as the threatened to kill those onboard if the driver did not stop.
In the process, a passenger, named Olumuyiwa Idowu, was stabbed in the chest with a knife and robbed of his phone, bag and unspecified amount of money by the attackers. Another passenger, Tunde Babalola, was also robbed of his belongings.”
The bandits were said to have fled the scene of the robbery but one of them was soon caught after the passengers reported the incident to some policemen at the Ibadan end of the expressway.

“With the help of vigilance group members in the community, one of them, Amaechi, was caught while he was also identified by a passenger as one of the two that robbed the vehicle. During questioning, Amaechi named an accomplice, Monday, while confessing to the crime,” the PPRO said.
