Amotekun men burst attempts by armed intruders from the North to invade Osun


Men of the Amotekun corps, State of Osun, have burst attempts by intruders who claimed they were from Northern part of the country to invade the state.

The intruders, who divided themselves into groups, were intercepted inside different commuter bus, with multifarious machetes, cutlasses, shovels and assorted charms.

While on interrogations, they claimed they were labourers at mining sites in Osun, but could not explain why they came with weapons and assorted charms and were trying to enter into the state of Osun, illegally.

It would be recalled that the directive by President Muhammadu Buhari and Governor ADEGBOYEGA OYETOLA on border closure, to forestall spread of the dreaded COVID-19, is still in force.

The drivers of the commuter buses also claimed that they were only conveying the ”illegal travellers” from Ibadan, Oyo state capital to Osogbo, in Osun; after the had alighted from trucks coming from the North.

They were thereafter sent back to where they came from, by men of Amotekun corps, state of Osun, to prevent transmission of COVID-19.

Swords, Cutlasses, Machetes and assorted charms, among others were recovered from the intruders.
