By Temitope Adedeji,Akure

The Commander of Ondo State Security Network, also known as Amotekun Corps, Chief Adetunji Adeleye, has said that major highways in the state are now safer for motorists to ply.

He said that operatives of the Amotekun Corps had begun a 24-hour patrol of the major highways in Ondo State to forestall criminal activities.

Adeleye, who disclosed this, on Wednesday at the Corps Headquarters in Akure while parading 45 suspects nabbed across the state for crimes ranging from kidnapping, burglary, assault, theft, raping to human trafficking, among others, said that the deployment of more personnel in synergy with other sister-agencies had yielded more efforts, adding that it has drastically reduced crime incidences across the 18 local councils.

He, however, added that the ban on the activities of commercial motorcyclists, otherwise known as “Okada” at night in the state, which has been the major cause of insecurity, remained enforced.

He concluded that the corps is battle ready to flush out criminal elements from the state.
