The Osun Police Command on Monday said it intercepted and detained a vehicle laden with suspected stolen 14 goats in Ede, headquarters of Ede South Local Government Area, while the driver escaped.
A police source divulged that a team of policemen patrolling Sekona/Nigerian Army Regiment Construction Company Highway saw a speeding red Mitsubishi car, with number plates XF 467 NND at Sekona junction around 1a.m.
