The Ondo State Security Network Agency, codenamed Amotekun, has nabbed 150 suspected criminals. The network also apprehended six trailers and recovered some weapons during the celebration of Christmas and New Year.
The Commander of Amotekun, Chief Adetunji Adeleye disclosed this while briefing reporters about the activities of the Corps during the Yelutide season. He said 150 suspected criminals and six vehicles were apprehended by the border patrol team during the 2022 exercise.
Among those arrested were 16 suspected kidnappers, who were apprehended just before carrying out the dastardly act.
His words: “We appreciate God for successes recorded at the just concluded yuletide season. You remember when we launched operation ‘Gba’le Gba’ko’ at the Osun/Ondo boarder patrol we assured residents of both states that it’s going to be as much as crime free celebration.
“Thank God that we didn’t record any violent crime throughout these period. We owe this to protection of God Almighty and with the support of the state Governor, Arakurin Oluwarotimi Akeredolu. Our appreciation also goes to the good people of Ondo state for giving us timely information over this period of time.”
