Amotekun parades arrested 45 suspected criminals in Ondo

At least 45 arrested suspected criminals were paraded by the Ondo State Security Network Agency, also known as Amotekun Corps, on Wednesday, at the headquarters of the corps in Akure, the state capital.


The suspects were arrested by the men of the corps across the 18 local government areas of the state.

The state Commander of Amotekun, Adetunji Adeleye, said the suspects would be made to face the full wrath of the law for committing crimes, noting that they had been profiled.

Giving the breakdown, the commander said the paraded suspected criminals included 14 kidnappers, one dangerous driver, five burglars, two anti-grazing offenders, and five arrested for stealing and buying stolen goods.

Adeleye said, “We arrested 14 kidnappers, we have a particular case where we were able to break the kidnap syndicate in Akoko LG. The two kidnap victims are present and the bike the kidnappers were supplied with.

“In our strife to bring them out, the kidnapper had already confessed and was macheted in several places by his fellow kidnapper who wanted to cover up the crime.

“The officers of the Corp rushed the suspected kidnapper to the hospital, and he was treated. He has given useful information.

“This kidnap syndicate has confessed to several kidnapping activities in Akoko, Kogi, and Edo areas. And we are still looking for their sponsor who is at large.

We are reassuring the people that there is no hiding place for criminals in Ondo State.”
