A Fulani man, Isah Buruku, has been arrested by the Oyo State Poilce Command over alleged rape and robbery of women who stand by the road side and look to be given free rides, otherwise known as 'lift'.
The 26-year-old Buruku was also docked for unlawful possession of an English double-barrel gun.
While parading the suspect among other criminals, the state Commissioner of Police, Muhammad Musa Katsina, told journalists that Buruku had been on the wanted list of the police for the offence of armed robbery and rape in Igbeti town and its environs.

His cup was finally full when he was arrested at Bakasse, a border village between Kwara and Oyo States.
The CP further mentioned that Buruku who lives in Igbeti, had a Volkwagen Golf car and used to go to Gambari community to relax where trailer and tanker drivers and other commuters have a stop over before going to the northern part of Nigeria.
At such points, there are also some ladies who wait to hitch free rides and those were usually his victims.
According to the police, Buruku's modus operandi was that he would have taken his time to study the young ladies seeking for a free ride.
From there, he was said to have come up with a method of approaching any young lady waiting on the highway, pretending as if he wanted to assist her. He would convince the lady that it would be difficult to get a ride easily at that point, offering to help such a lady to Eyenkorin in Kwara State where she would get a vehicle faster and cheaper.
While in the car, the suspect who is married with two children, would offer the lady some drinks which, unknown to her, had been laced with drugs that would induce sleep.
After the lady must have slept, he would allegedly make a u-turn and take the lady to an apartment he rented and raped her.
After raping the lady, he would reportedly ransack her belongings, steal any valuable he could lay his hands, after which he would leave her to her fate.
His albatross came when he picked a lady which he kept for five days, raping her continuously in her unconscious state the whole time.
At the end of the fifth day, he was alleged to have removed the N50,000 he found in her bag and left.
Two days later, the lady woke up and raised the alarm, which made neighbours to rush towards her to assist her. The lady informed the police that she had gathered the money stolen by Isah to take home for the treatment of her sick mother before she fell into his trap.
When interrogated by the police, Buruku confessed to the crime, admitting that he had carnal knowledge of the lady and also stole N50,000 from her, after which he ran to Ilorin, Kwara State to hide.
