THE Ondo State Government has ordered the return of the 45 youths who were arrested in Okitipupa, the headquarters of Okitipupa Local Government Area of the state, to their states of origin.

The youths were said to be apprehended in a trailer by men of the Ondo State Security Network Agency also known as Amotekun on Thursday evening.

When interrogated, the northerners were said to have come to the state for a military training in the army barracks in Okitipupa, but the soldiers in the barracks reportedly rejected them as there was no signal to that effect.

Speaking on the matter on behalf of the state government, the Commissioner for Information and Orientation in the state, Donald Ojogo, commended the Amotekun corps for handling the situation maturely and professionally.

He said, “The security situation we found ourselves in the last 72 hours was a very precarious one. If not that it was discretely and professionally handled and well managed by officials of government, particularly Amotekun Commander and SSA on security, the situation would have degenerated to the extent of lynching and jungle justice.
