Ola ‘Kiya, Reporting
They were intercepted around Sango, Akure/Ado road by its team who were on ‘stop and search’ at about 6:30 a.m as they became suspicious of their movement.
The trailers’ drivers conveying them said they were coming from Kastina, Kano and Jigawa states, claiming that they picked the invaders in groups heading to South West states.
It was learnt that the 151 suspects included five women, hidden behind beans and rice bags inside the trailers.
Confirming the report, the State Commander of Amotekun, Akogun Adetunji Adeleye said the suspects were cleverly concealed behind bags of rice.
“Upon interception, we asked of their destinations, some said Akure while others said Osogbo in Osun state.
“When the vehicles were searched, 10 bikes and various dangerous charms were found,” he affirmed.
Akogun Adeleye, however, stressed that while respecting their rights as Nigerians, yet, we are not sure of what they are here for.
Adeleye said that as long as they didn’t have anybody that is ready to take custody of them in Ondo State, “we will send them back to their various states.”
