No fewer than 31 suspected criminals were on Wednesday paraded by the Ondo State Security Network Agency, otherwise known as Amotekun Corps.
According to the Commander of the Amotekun Corps in the State, Adetunji Adeleye, the suspects were arrested in various parts of the state during the Easter and Eid-el-Fitr celebrations.
Adetunji added that the suspects were involved in crimes ranging from raping, illegal grazing, kidnapping, armed robbery and murder.
In reference to the Ikare Akoko crisis, Adeleye, who also serves as the Special Adviser to Governor Oluwarotimi Akeredolu on Security Matters, vowed that going forward, security agencies would take serious action against anyone inciting unrest in the community.
He guaranteed that Ikare Akoko is now safe for potential Corps members and NYSC officials to perform orientation programs at Orientation Camp situated in the town.
While urging residents of the state to be security conscious, the Amotekun boss disclosed that herdsmen have renewed attempts to flood forests in the state.
Adeleye revealed that the state had in the last one month experienced sudden influx of illegal herdsmen from neighbouring towns in Ekiti, Kogi and Edo States.
According to him, the herders came in trucks but some of them were stopped from entering the state.
