According to Mr Abubakar, “the truck with registration number FGG 407 XB was apprehended along Ibrahim Taiwo road around 4:00a.m on Sunday by officers of the agency.
“Immediately the driver saw the officer of the agency, he parked the truck and ran away,’’ he said.
The public relations officer also quoted the Managing Director of the organisation, Faisal Kabir, as saying, “once investigation is completed, we will hand them over to Hisbah Board for necessary action.
“Kabir further called on the general public to always support the agency for the security and safety of the state’’.
