Amotekun nabs 31 suspects for kidnapping, other crimes in Ondo


The Western Nigeria Security Network, also known as the Amotekun Corps, in Ondo State has reported the arrest of 31 suspects across the 18 Local Government Areas of the state. Commander Adetunji Adeleye disclosed this while parading the suspects before the media in Akure. The detainees are accused of various crimes, including kidnapping, illegal possession of firearms, and engaging in burglary of shops and houses.

Commander Adeleye affirmed the commitment of the Amotekun Corps to maintaining the safety and security of the state. He highlighted the government’s determination to ensure that investors, farmers, residents, and commuters can move freely without the fear of attacks by criminals. The governor-led administration has reportedly directed security agencies to intensify efforts in eliminating criminal elements that threaten the peace of the people.

Adeleye assured the public that Amotekun would continue its 24-hour patrols, tracking criminals both in urban areas and forest reserves to guarantee the safety of travelers. In response to a recent kidnapping incident in Ekiti State, the commander mentioned that approximately 100 personnel have been deployed to assist in addressing the security situation. He emphasized the importance of grassroots state police as a solution to the prevailing insecurity, particularly in the South-west region, urging the Federal Government to take appropriate measures.
