Men of the Ondo State security network agency, the Amotekun Corps, have apprehended over 150 suspected invaders of northern extraction in Akure, the state capital.

The persons were intercepted around 6:30 am, on Thursday, on the Akure/Ado-Ekiti Highway during a stop-and-search operation by the corps.

The drivers of the two trucks conveying the invaders claimed they were coming from Abuja, Kano, Katsina, and Jigawa states to Ondo State.

While addressing newsmen in Akure on the incident, the Commander of Amotekun in Ondo State, Adetunji Adeleye, disclosed that they hid under bags of rice and beans in the trucks, noting that they could not tell their mission in the state.

He added that some charms and photographs were found on them while the motorcycles in their possession did not have valid papers.

Adeleye explained that the travelers will be interrogated and profiled before sending them back to their bases.
