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.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that they ordered the driver to stop, however, he refused.

The police team, led by one Inspector Ajayi Sunday, chased the driver from Sekona junction to Cemetery Area in Edun-Abon, where the driver parked the vehicle and escaped before the police arrived.

The vehicle and the goats were taken to the station.

Confirming the arrest to newsmen in Osogbo, the Command’s Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), Mrs Folasade Odoro, said the goats had been detained.

The PPRO said the goats would remain in the police custody until the owner showed up, adding that police had commenced investigation into the matter.
