Luck runs out as Amotekun arrests 151 Northerners in Ondo

Amotekun, which is the Ondo State Security Network Agency has intercepted another 168 people traveling from the north to the state.

According to reports the travelers, who are Northerners and 40 motorcycles, hid beneath cows hauled in two trucks and were intercepted in Akure, the state capital.

This happened four days after the corps intercepted 151 alleged charm-wielding invaders near Sango along Akure/Ado road.

Speaking on the arrest, the state Commander of Amotekun, Akogun Adetunji Adeleye, said the suspects were also arrested with dangerous charms and other dangerous weapons.

He said that they were stopped near Itaogbolu-Iju in the State’s Akure North Local Government Area after an Amotekun squad became suspicious of their activity.

He further added that despite their claims that they were picked up in groups along the road and had no destination, investigation had shown that they were traveling from the States of Jigawa and Kano.

He said: “Cows are on the upper floor, motorcycles are wrapped and disassembled in the middle, and 168 people are resting down on the lower floors, so if you’re not observant, you won’t see them.

“Upon interrogation, many of them do not have an address of where they are going, nobody invited them and we are becoming curious of these invasions.

“I called it invasion because you see over 100 able-bodied men concealing themselves under animals, it shows they are up to negative motives.

“As a Nigerian, regardless of the geopolitical zone, you have the right to lawfully go to any part of the country, but it is the unlawful part we are contesting. When you now move in a suspicious way that would amount to criminality that is where it puts you to question.”
