It was gathered that the four people were arrested due to information from people of the area.

A source who informed on Saturday said that the suspects had been taken into custody at the police area command office at Owode.

Amotekun commandant in the state, Col. Olayinka Olayanju (rtd), confirmed the arrest on Sunday.

Olayanju, in a reaction on Sunday said that the suspects were arrested because they planned to disrupt the peace of the state.

“We invaded the place and made the arrest and handed them over to the police for further investigation.

“They were among those who fought with walanpayan gangs”.
