In different sections of the state, the Ondo State Security Network Agency, commonly known as Amotekun Corps, has apprehended 19 suspected offenders.
Two youngsters, Timilehin (12) and Sunday (16), aka Oyenusi, and 20-year-old Odeyemi Ayodele, aka Osumbo, were among the accused.
During the military regime, Anini, Oyenusi, and Osumbo were hardcore criminals who were murdered by firing squad.
At Ijare community in the Ifedore Local Government Area of Ondo State, Timilehin, Sunday, and Ayodele were arrested for robbery.
The three lads specialized in armed robbery, according to the commander of the corps, Adetunji Adeyeye, who paraded the suspects on Thursday at the command headquarters in Akure, the state capital.
Apart from the trio, 16 other suspects were caught for various illegal actions, including kidnapping, rape, stealing, and open grazing, according to the Amotekun boss.
"One of the three juveniles (Oyenusi) was arrested last year, transported to a rehabilitation center, and ultimately released due to his age," Adeyeye explained.
His mother was arrested too because ‘Oyenusi’ confessed to us that his mother was the one preparing charms for him to prevent his downfall and arrest by security agents and his mother has been a beneficiary of the crime proceeds.
“This time around, we will write to the state Ministry of Justice for possible advice on what to do about them. But for their mothers, who have been aiding them, they will be charged to court.”
Recovered from the suspects were guns, bullets, phones and money.©Standard Gazette, 2021.
