The suspects were apprehended on their way to Ondo state from Lagos. They had buried guns and bullets in a coffin and pretended to be transporting a corpse for a  burial.  The soldiers, however, decided to search the coffin to confirm whether it was truly a corpse only for them to behold  an outrageous stash of ammunition.
