Ondo State Security Network Agency, popularly known as Amotekun, has revealed that it has apprehended more than 7,000 criminals across the State since its establishment over three years ago.

Mr Adetunji Adeleye, the corps commander, stated that no fewer than 1,500 persons have been charged to court and many of them have already faced judgement for their crimes.

Adeleye disclosed this during an interactive session organized by the State Correspondents’ Chapel of the Nigeria Union of Journalists (NUJ), titled “The Platform.”

He maintained that the outstanding achievement of the corps had showcased the agency’s commitment to maintaining law and order in the State.

The Amotekun boss also stated that the corps had played a crucial role in resolving the crisis of farmers/herders clashes that was once a nightmare for residents of the State.

Adeleye maintained that within the last two years, the clashes have decreased by more than 95 percent, stressing that the decline is a testament to the agency’s dedication in fostering peaceful coexistence between farmers and herders in the State.

“The sister security agencies, particularly, the DSS has often assisted us in getting the requisite geo-location of kidnap victims and suspects.

“All these coupled with our local intellect and unconventional methods assisted us in arresting to date, well over 7,000 suspected criminals out of which 1,500 of them have been charged to court.

“We’ve even secured judgement of very many of them,” he said.
