The suspects

The Ondo State Security Network Agency codenamed Amotekun Corps has intercepted a trailer conveying eighteen suspects.

With 30 of them tagged as wanderers still at large, the Amotekun Corps stated that they constituted a security threat following the suspicious manner in which they were moving.

The Commander, Chief Adetunji Adeleye, paraded the suspects who were all young men at the headquarters of the corps in Alagbaka, Akure, the state capital.

He said the suspects were first sighted along Ilesa-Akure expressway.

Adeleye added that they were trailed to Arakale road.

The Commander maintained that they hid themselves inside a trailer load of beans.

 “Our men while on duty saw a suspected vehicle with a load of beans and then trailed the vehicle to Akure. They stopped along Arakale road. While searching the vehicle, we realised they were not carrying only beans but 18 young men,” he said.

Adeleye emphasised that following the interception of the men, they failed to provide genuine answers to the questions posed to them as regards their destination and mission in the state.

While stating that the suspects would be handed over to the Head of Hausa community in the state to take them back to their various destinations, Adeleye said that they could constitute nuisance in the state if they were not intercepted.

He added that 30 others who were said to have arrived ahead of them would soon be apprehended as he disclosed that the corps had launched a search for them.

Meanwhile, the leader of the Hausa community in the state, Bala Umaru, and Usman Bello, Chairman, Miyetti Allah, said they have decided to take them back to their various states. PMNEWS
