Amotekun arrests two ex-convicts with a gun and charms in Osun
Men from the Amotekun Corps in Osun State have arrested two suspected criminals terrorizing the residents of Modakeke and surrounding areas.
The suspects identified as Segun Ajayi, 27, and Sunday Adedoja, 37, were arrested with a Danish double-barreled pistol and charms, in the early hours of Tuesday after a complaint was lodged at Amotekun’s office in Modakeke .
Confirming the arrest to reporters in Osogbo on Thursday March 16, Amotekun Field Commander Captain BO Akanni (Rtd) said the arrested culprits were terrorizing the residents of Modakeke before Nemesis caught up with them.
“Our men have received information from concerned residents of Modakeke about the activities of certain criminal elements. So our men sprung into action and arrested the duo while armed with a Danish gun and charms,” he said.
“Investigation revealed that the suspects are ex-convicts,” Akanni added.
The commander also urged residents of the state to be aware of the security of their surroundings and to expose any hiding places of criminals in their areas to security agencies.
He said the suspects had been transferred to police command for further investigation and questioning.
