3 Days After Oyo Intercepted Over 150, Ondo Amotekun Arrests Trucks Conveying 151 Charm-Carrying Invaders

0

The men of the Ondo State Security Network Agency, also known as Amotekun Corps, have intercepted a truck that conveyed about 151 persons who were suspected to invaders.

It was gathered that the corps made the arrest while acting on intelligence on the incursion of terrorists into the South- West of Nigeria.

The suspects included five women, hidden behind beans and rice bags inside the trailers.

They were intercepted around the Sango area of Akure-Ado Expressway by the operatives of the corps who were on ‘stop and search’ on Thursday as they became suspicious of their movement.

The state Commander of Amotekun, Akogun Adetunji Adeleye, said the suspects were concealed behind bags of rice inside the truck.

He said, “We intercepted two trucks conveying 151 people who were cleverly concealed behind bags of rice and beans in a way that one may not know these number of people were tucked in the trucks.

“Upon interception, we asked of their destinations. Some said Akure, while others said Osogbo in Osun state. Although, we have not completed profiling them, as none of them has an idea of what they were going to do or their mission.

“All they were able to tell us is that they entered the vehicle and came to Ondo State.

“While searching the vehicles, we saw 10 bikes and various dangerous charms. If we check and do not find anything on them as long as they don’t have anybody ready to take custody of them in Ondo state, we will send them back to their various states.”

The suspects were said to have been coming from Kastina, Kano, and Jigawa states heading to South-West states.

He continued, “Some of them claimed they are from Kastina, Kano, and Jigawa states, but on how they came together, they said they couldn’t figure it out, but that they were conveyed by the truck down to Akure in Ondo State.

“This, however, is not a good sign, following the security warning in the South West states.

“While respecting their rights as Nigerians, yet, we are not sure of what they are here for. We still feel that while traveling, anyone should have a mission and destination at where he or she is going to,” he said.
