According to Punch, the man was arrested near the state Ministry of Environment and Forestry along the Ahmadu Bello Way in Ilorin.

A cheque of N100m, pictures he allegedly took with top politicians in Nigeria, four automated teller machine cards, male and female condoms, Valium injections and Infinix Hot 5 phone were found on him, upon being searched, sources reveal.
