“Operating with impunity, the gang has subjected many drivers to physical harm and acts of bestiality when they resist extortion attempts.

“We have been on the trail of this gang for a while after receiving several complaints from road users who ply this corridor. We even heard of instances of drivers who refused to comply and later faced violent threats, including the removal of essential truck components such as batteries and mirrors right on the expressway,” Jejeloye stated.

The chairman expressed disgust at the manner in which these set of miscreants wreak unnecessary havoc on the highways in the name of Parks and Garages despite the official pronouncement on the ban on the activities of the agency late last year.
