Three ex-convicts – Femi Olasupo, Musbau Oloyede, and Ahmed Akinsanya – who were arrested in 2011 by men of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad for terrorizing residents in the Iwo road area of Ibadan, Oyo state, were each sentenced to 40 years’ imprisonment.

Some neighbors of Olasupo had reported him to the police, alleging that he had no source of livelihood and harbored people of questionable character.

The trio, after a rigorous trial that lasted about seven years, was found guilty of conspiracy and illegal possession of firearms by an Oyo State high court sitting in Ibadan.

According to the prosecution in the suit heard before Justice Adegboye Gbolagunte of the ring road high court 7, the first accused person was arrested in March 2011.

Upon investigation, he led detectives to an uncompleted building behind an eatery on Iwo road, Ibadan, where four guns were recovered.
