The Amotekun Corps in Ondo State has revealed that two out of the three persons kidnapped along the Ihoba/Iju road have been rescued while efforts to rescue the remaining one were at the advanced stage.
This was made known by Adetunji Adeleye, the Amotekun Commander in the state on Wednesday.
“We deployed over 1,000 Amotekun Corps to complement the efforts of the mother security agencies which included; the Army, police, the NSCDC and the DSS with a view towards ensuring that the state is crime-free.
”The security situation of the State now, is that which anyone can come and transact business without fear of molestation.
”As a result of a very large turnout of arrested criminals being prosecuted by officers and legal officers of the state Director of Public Prosecution in conjunction with officers of Amotekun Corps, the government had to build a separate Court to assist the Judiciary in the quick dispensation of justice.
As we talk, 100 of such criminals have been treated according to the law of the land in the various Courts in the state,” Akogun Adeleye stated.
He also disclosed, that the state has experienced a sudden influx of illegal herdsmen into the state through border communities in Edo and Kogi states over 900 including their cattle.
“They came in trucks with loads which they refused the joint security patrol team to search.
”Only herdsmen who registered with the state government would be allowed in the state, warning the illegal ones to stay away or face the full wrath of the law,” he warned.
While assuring people of the state of security of their lives and property, he urge them to report any suspected movement in their neighbourhood to the security agencies in the state for immediate action.
