Group claims FG’s move to declare AMOTEKUN illegal a plot to set up Yoruba nation

Men of the South-West Security Network code-named Amotekun have rescued nine out of the 12 abducted travellers in Ondo State.

The passengers who were travelling from Abuja to Lagos in an 18-seater bus were attacked by armed men along the Idoani-Ifira Road in Akoko South-East local government area of the state on Wednesday.

The state Commander of Amotekun, Mr. Adetunji Adeleye, who disclosed this to journalists on Thursday in Akure, said the victims were rescued after his men responded to a distress call from people in the area.

He said the operatives are still combing the bush to rescue the remaining three victims.
