The Ondo State Security Agency Network, the Amotekun, on Wednesday, said it had arrested some persons in connection with the killing of the Olufon of Ifon, Oba Israel Adeusi.
According to the Commander of the Ondo Security Network Agency, also known as Amotekun Corps, Chief Adetunji Adeleye, the suspects were arrested by a combined team of security operatives at Elegbaka on Wednesday, December 2.
Adeleye added that the Amotekin Corps also rescued four kidnap victims while searching for the killers of the monarch.
Oba Adeusi was murdered by suspected kidnappers between Elegbeka and Ifon while returning from a meeting in Akure.
Adeleye said the suspects were being interrogated, debunking insinuations that his men were not in the bush, adding that surveillance has been mounted at the farm of the late Chief Olu Falae to prevent further attacks.
“Operation Clean Up, launched on Tuesday, led to the arrest of over 20 suspects from various black spots in Akure and environs. Some of the suspects were caught by the Amotekun Corps while they were robbing,” Adeleye said in a statement.
