In a Thursday, June 23 press conference, the Ondo State Commander of the Security Network Agency, known as “Amotekun Corps”, told journalists that all suspects linked to the June 5 tragic incident will be arrested.
“As regards the Owo incident, we have recovered the last vehicle they used for that operation and we made some arrests and we have also recovered some vital things which we are working on,” Adetunji Adeleye has been quoted as telling journalists during the June 23 press conference.
He added, “A number of people have been arrested concerning the Owo issue as well as a number of equipment.”
“On that day, we pursued them to the point that we recovered the vehicle and we are still pursuing them,” the Amotekun commander said while parading some 71 men who were arrested for various criminal activities across the Nigerian State.
