Members of the Ondo state Amotekun Corps have arrested 18 Northern wanderers after intercepting a trailer conveying them from the northern part of Nigeria.

The suspects were arrested along Arakale road in the heart of Akure, the Ondo state capital this week.

The Amotekun Corps said that they constituted a security threat following the suspicious manner in which they were moving.

Parading the wanderers at the headquarters of the corps in Alagbaka, Akure, the state capital, the Commander, Chief Adetunji Adeleye, disclosed that the suspects were first sighted along Ilesa-Akure expressway.

The Commander maintained that they hid inside a trailer load of beans.

“Our men while on duty saw a suspected vehicle with a load of beans and then trailed the vehicle to Akure. They stopped along Arakale road. While searching the vehicle, we realised they were not carrying only beans but 18 young men,” he said.

Adeleye stated that the men failed to provide genuine answers as regards their destination and mission in the state.

While stating that the suspects would be handed over to the Head of Hausa community in the state to take them back to their various destinations, Adeleye said that they could constitute nuisance in the state if they were not intercepted.

He added that 30 others who were said to have arrived ahead of them would soon be apprehended as he disclosed that the corps had launched a search for them.
