Trailer loads with Fifty passengers hidden inside fruits Intercepted by police

Fifty persons from Zamfara state hidden inside Lorry loads of fruits were intercepted in Ilorin by officers of Kwara state police command.

Reports said they were intercepted at the Oyun area close to Kulende junction around Zango area of the state capital.

Further sources claimed that the trailer actually developed mechanical fault around the area, a development that prompted residents of the area to pay attention to the trailer.

It was also gathered that while various fruits were piled up on top of the planks that were neatly arranged, no fewer than fifty passengers were hidden inside the lorry.

“It was when the trailer stopped that we closely see that human beings were hidden inside the trailer under the planks” said a resident in the area who craved anonymity.

Kwara State Police Public Relations Officer, DSP Kayode Okasanmi, confirmed the development.

He said that the command had prior intelligence report of the incident and therefore intercepted the trailer. -Vanguard
