Kidnappers fleeing Ekiti for Ondo, says Amotekun boss

Commander of the Ondo State Security Network codenamed Amotekun Corps, Akogun Adeleye Adetunji, has said that the increased security in neighbouring Ekiti State has forced kidnappers to flee to the state.

Akogun Adetunji said there was a surge in the arrest of suspected kidnappers in the state.

Adetunji spoke when he paraded 43 suspected arrested in different parts of the state for various crimes

The Ondo Amotekun boss said the state would not be a safe haven for kidnappers feeling Ekiti state.

He, however, said there were security breaches in northern parts of the state and an increase in the number of herders/farmers clashes.

He said: “I want to trace this to the heavy presence of security personnel in Ekiti and I want to believe that they are being driven to Ondo State, but we want to tell you that Ondo State can never be a haven for criminals.

“We have risen to the challenge and all of them that we have picked in kidnap scenes, during kidnap, and during attempts to kidnap with credible victims around to identify some of them, are the ones we are parading today.
