The Ondo State Security Network Agency, also known as Amotekun Corps ,
has disclosed that no fewer than 400 cows have been arrested by the men of the
corps in its ongoing “Operation Clean Up” in the state
The state Commander of the Amotekun Corps, Mr. Adetunji Adeleye disclosed this
to newsmen in Akure on Friday, July 2.
According to him, local hunters helped them arrest the cows.
He also stated that the state government’s directive to all local government chairmen
to set up a vigilante system was bringing positive results.
He said, “We started from the state capital and combed all the black spots and made
over 400 arrests before we headed to the local government areas and concentrated on
the northern senatorial district of the state where we embarked on 24 hours patrol.
“We engaged the services of local hunters and vigilantes to join our men and patrol
the forest. Substantially, we were also able to drive out the bad guys in recent times.
You will find out that most of the kidnap cases you get nowadays are at the border.
“We have put out searchlight and we have mapped out security strategies to
checkmate the activities of those bad people. Ose local government area has
boundaries with Edo and Kogi States and it offers an easy-access way out. But we are
checking them,” he added.
