The police in Oyo State have arrested and arraigned 15 suspects alleged to be responsible for the attack on a commercial bus that conveyed Christmas gifts meant for Ibadan family heads, otherwise known as Mogajis, in Ibadan on Thursday.

A senior police source stated on Friday that 15 of the people responsible for the act had been arrested, with some of the stolen items also recovered.

He added that some of the suspects were arraigned and remanded in police custody while manhunt continues for others who are on the run.

Hoodlums attacked a bus conveying the Christmas gifts meant for the family heads (Mogajis) at the Oja’ba area of Ibadan South East Local Government Area.

One of the Mogajis, it was learnt, was inside the bus when the incident happened.

The source added that the arrests were made after the incident was reported at Mapo Police Station.

“The incident occurred yesterday (Thursday) afternoon. The hoodlums attacked the bus carrying some Christmas gifts meant for some Mojajis in Ibadan at Oja’ba.

“We were able to make some arrests after the incident. The hoodlums carted away the gift items donated to the Mojajis. I don’t know who the donor was. I don’t know whether it was the government or an individual that gave them the gifts.

“The case was reported at Mapo Police Station. The bus was carrying items like rice, chicken and groundnut oil.

“We were able to recover some items during a search of some shops in the area,” the source said.

It was gathered that the hoodlums who attacked the bus mistook the items it was conveying for palliatives.
