No fewer than 151 suspected intruders have been detained by agents of the Ondo State Security Network, Amotekun Corps.
DAILY POST learned that the force was acting on intelligence about the terrorist incursion into the southwestern region of Nigeria.
They were apprehended at about 6:30 am on the Sango axis on the Akure/Ado route by a team from the Corps who conducted a “stop and search” in response to their suspicious move.
Dangerous amulets and photos of combat exercises were discovered on the suspects after thorough investigation.
The driver of the truck carrying the invaders claimed they were from Jigawa, Kastina and Kano states and that they had chosen them from groups traveling to the southwestern states.
Among the 151 suspects, five women were found hiding in the truck behind sacks of beans and rice.
Amotekun’s state commander, Akogun Adetunji Adeleye, who confirmed the development, claimed the suspects were cleverly hidden behind sacks of rice.
“On interception, we asked about their destinations, some said Akure while others said Osogbo in Osun state.
“We haven’t profiled them yet, because none of them have any idea of what they’re going to do or their mission.
“All they could tell us is that they got into the vehicle and came to Ondo state.
“However, this is not a good sign, given the security warning in the southwestern states.
“While we respect their rights as Nigerians, we are not sure what they are here for, but we still believe that when traveling, everyone should have a mission and destination where they are going.”
