By Deborah Oladejo, Osogbo
Men of the Amotekun Corps in Osun state on Tuesday intercepted some Northern youths in an attempt to sneak into the State.
The Northerners who allegedly divided themselves into groups, inside different commuter buses, claimed to be labourers at a mining site in Osun.
According to the Director-General of Amotekun in the State, Comrade Amitolu Shittu, multifarious machetes, cutlasses, shovels and assorted charms were recovered from the travellers.
Shittu said the travellers could not explain why they came with weapons and assorted charms as well as trying to enter into the state illegally.
“The drivers of the commuter buses also claimed that they were only conveying the travellers from Ibadan, Oyo state capital to Osogbo, in Osun; after they had alighted from trucks coming from the North.
“They were thereafter sent back to where they came from to prevent transmission of Corona Virus,” Amotekun DG said.
