The three traders were alleged to have in 2017 raided 11 houses in one night as well as terrorize residents around Isolo axis and Adegbola area of Akure.

Luck ran out of them where they were sharing their loot at an uncompleted building when men of the disbanded Special Anti-Robbery Squad, SARS, swooped on them and arrested them.

The Prosecution led by State Chief Legal Officer, Bunmi Koyenikan, called eight witnesses including some victims of the gang.

In his judgment, Justice William Lamide found the three accused guilty on the seven count charges.

He convicted them based on the confessional statements and testimonies of their victims.
