The Kwara State Police Command yesterday paraded three persons for allegedly attacking and robbing Prof Abdullahi Onimisi of the University of Ilorin.
The gang was led by Onimisi’s former driver, Opeyemi Esan.
Commissioner of Police Olusola Amore, who paraded the suspects, appealed to the people to monitor and have documented identification of their serving and former domestic servants for security purposes.
He said Esan allegedly came from Lagos State to recruit two others to rob the don, adding that they attacked Onimisi with machetes and other dangerous weapons, leaving him with serious injuries.
Items, such as like jewellery, mobile phones and a Toyota (Muscle) Camry were recovered from the suspects.
Amore, who said his men acted on intelligence and arrested two of the suspects in Ilorin, added that they confessed to the crime.
He said the gang leader took officers to four different locations before taking them to where the items were kept.
Amore said the suspects would be charged to court.
