At least 427 suspected members of the dreaded “One Million Boys” have been arrested by the Oyo State Police Command in its efforts to rid the state of criminality.

The state Commissioner of Police, Mr. Abiodun Odude, disclosed this while addressing journalists on Wednesday on the achievements of the command under his leadership.

Members of “One Million Boys” and “Indomie Boys” have reportedly caused mayhems in some parts of Ibadan, the state capital, in the last few years.

Odude, who was on a courtesy visit to the Nigerian Union of Journalists (NUJ), Oyo State Council, as part of activities marking the World Press Freedom Day, said other suspects including 40 suspected armed robbers, kidnappers and others were also arrested by the command.

He said: “We have succeeded in checkmating the activities of kidnappers since I resumed office in Oyo State two months ago. We had three cases of abductions, we succeeded in liberating the victims without paying ransom and also apprehended all the hoodlums that participated in the crime.

”Also, we, in this command, were able to check activities of the two cult groups. I mean the ‘One Million Boys’ and the ‘Indomie Boys.’ Both of them are cult groups. We sent them out of the state. We arrested about 427 of their members, put them behind bars and later charged them to court. ”

While reeling out other achievements of the command since he assumed office, the police commissioner said among those rescued from their abductors included a 70-year old man and his wife who were locked up in a toilet for about a week.

“We thank God that all of them were rescued by the police. We have arrested almost all of the kidnappers and we are not resting until we pick the remaining members. They go about committing all sorts of crimes like kidnapping, armed robbery and extortion,” he stated. (The Nation)
