A statement issued by Col. Olayinka, the commander of the Amotekun in the state, said the operation was carried out while they were on their joint routine patrol in the early hours of today April 29.

 

“They tried to escape from the scene but were given hot pursuit by the operatives as they tried to evade arrest. We are still on the trail of others who managed to escape from the scene.”

 

He gave the names of those arrested as Awali Atine, Ibrahim Abu, Shuaib Balau, Ibrahim Musa, Abdullah Masika and Umar Aliu Masika.

 

He said all the six suspects are of Fulani extraction and the arrest was carried out along Okeho-Ilua and Okeho-Iseyin Road around 4am on Thursday. Olayinka added that the bandits’ modus operandi is to pretend like herdsmen in the day and violently robbed innocent passengers on the highways at night.

 

He said they were caught with 183 cows, weapons and a total sum of N268, 470.00. Olayinka added that they have been handed over to the Nigeria Police Authority, Okeho Divisional Headquarters, alongside the 183 cows, weapons, and money found in their possession for further investigation.
