Ondo State Security Network Agency, also known as Amotekun, has intercepted 168 suspected invaders with charms in two trucks.
Amotekun Intercepts Invaders In Ondo
The suspected invaders were intercepted around Itaogbolu and Iju communities in the Akure North Local Government Area of the state during a stop and search.
The Commander of the Ondo Amotekun Corps, Akogun Adetunji Adeleye, said the suspects were coming from Kano and Jigawa states without any clear mission in Ondo.
“On Sunday, our stop and search team saw these two trucks; they told them that they were on their way to Ondo State with cows.
“After careful examination, we found out that they carefully concealed about 40 motorcycles with 168 people lying down beneath the motorcycles.
“The upper floor has cows, the middle has motorcycles wrapped and dismantled and at the lower floor, we have 168 people lying down, such that if you are not careful, you won’t observe it.
“So, we questioned where they were going and why they packed themselves and why they were avoiding people and they said they were coming to Ondo State.
“Upon interrogation, none of them have the address of where they were going; nobody invited them and we are becoming curious of these invasions.
“I call it invasion because you see over 100 able-bodied men concealing themselves under animals. It shows they are up to negative motives,” he said.
KanyiDaily had also reported how Amotekun arrested 45 Fulani youths from the Northern part of the country after they were allegedly transported to Okitipupa community in Ondo at night.
