Nine herders arrested by Ondo Amotekun

Amotekun Corps have apprehended nine herders and seized 100 cows along the Akure-Ilesa highway, Ondo State.

The herders were arrested for flouting Governor Oluwarotimi Akeredolu’s directives that herdsmen should get registered.

They were also nabbed for violating grazing rules on the highway.

Ondo Amotekun Corps Commander Mr. Adetunji Adeleye said the cows were seized at the boundary of Osun and Ondo states.

He said: “Our men took the cows to the headquarters of our office, which is about 30 kilometres from where they were intercepted.

“Apart from the possibility of illegal grazing, in most cases, it is a ploy kidnappers use. One of the occupants in a vehicle that was blocked called our distress line. And within a few minutes, our men were on ground.”
