Olufon-Of-Ifon Oba Israel Adeusi

Security operatives have arrested several suspects believed to be connected to the killing of Olufon of Ifon Oba Israel Adeusi.

Commander of the Ondo Security Network Agency also known as Amotekun Corps Adetunji Adeleye announced this on Wednesday at a press briefing in Akure.

He said four kidnap victims were rescued during the search for killers of Oba Adeusi.

He declined revealing the identity of the suspects as investigation was still ongoing.

The suspects were arrested by a combine team of security operatives that stormed Elegbaka forest after the killing of the monarch last Thursday.

Adeleye also said surveillance has been mounted at the farm of Olu Falae to prevent further attack on the farm by suspected herdsmen.

“In the past few weeks, Ondo State witnessed increase in kidnappings, armed robbery and men of the Amotekun Corps went into action in collaboration with other security agencies.

“We observed a downward trend after the ban of okada at night so we had to change tactics. That was why we launched the Operation Clean-Up which is intense patrol across the nook and cranny of Akure and other parts of the state,” he said.
