About 14 persons, suspected to be almajiris from the Northern part of the country and hidden inside a container, were intercepted by the Amotekun Corps in Ikire, Irewole Local Government Area of Osun State.
According to eye witness account, when the driver was stopped by Amotekun Corps to inquire what was in the container, he was reluctant to open the container; thus necessitating the Corps to force him to open the container, where the almajiris were found hidden.
The suspects were thereafter sent back to wherever it is they had come from
The Director General of Osun Amotekun Corps, Comrade Amitolu Shittu, while commending his men for being up to the task and their vigilance, called on residents of the state to see the Amotekun Corps as their own and not otherwise, in the interest of all.
He also warned recalcitrants to steer clear of Osun State or face the full wrath of the COVID-19 law, recently signed into law by Governor Adegboyega Oyetola.
