Forty-two persons from the northern part of the country whose mission to Ondo state is not clear to the state government have been returned to their states of origin.
While parading them in Akure, the commander of the Amotekun corps, Adetunji Adeleye said the men claimed they came for a private firm security training.
He said the explanation provided by the men and women were not satisfactory to the state government.
It was reported that the men and women were first sighted in Okitipupa local government area of Ondo state on Thursday as their sudden arrival created unnecessary tension and apprehension among many residents of the community.
Adeleye said “These people who came from Jigawa and Kano states were said to have come for a mission unknown to government. Their agent was said to have invited them for a special training. ”
Amotekun commander said after interrogating them, they could not give satisfactory answers about their mission.
He said the people will be escorted by his men to the state boundary.
The state commissioner for Information and Orientation, Donald Ojogo, said the action of government was meant to ensure that they return safely to their bases.
According to him, government will continue to ensure that people whose mission is not cleared are not allowed to stay in the state.
The forty two persons were later led out of the state by men of the Amotekun corps as were moved in different buses with their luggage.
