The PRO of the Commandl also revealed that Akinola perpetrated llthe act at the Oluyole area of Ibadan, Oyo State capital; adding that the corps got wind of the lmatter when a complaint was lodged at its office.

According to Yusuff, “Osun Amotekun on Tuesday arrested a 51-year-old man identified as Adegoroye Akinola, an indigene of Igbara Odo of Ekiti State for allegedly defrauding nine victims of N1.597.000 at the Oluyole area of Ibadan in Oyo State under the guise of processing of C.A.C registration and International Passport for them”.

“The suspect was arrested after a complaint was lodged at Amotekun Ayedaade Command in Gbongan, and our operatives immediately swung into action by tracking the suspect after he absconded from Ibadan to Igbara Odo in Ekiti State after perpetrating the evil act.”

Additionally, the statement highlighted that, “the suspect was constantly changing his mobile number, hence it was difficult to find out his whereabouts. But with the help of technical analysis, the Amotekun (operatives) discovered that he was in Igbara Odo in Ekiti State.”

“He was arrested following a tip-off from his girlfriend when she was asked to call and invite him to Gbongan for business and he was apprehended,” Yusuff revealed.

While addressing the ugly development, the Commander, Osun Amotekun Corps, Brig-Gen. Bashir Adewinmbi (retd.), said the suspect had been handed over to the Oyo State Command of the corps for further Interrogation and prosecution.

Adewinbi shed more light, “during the investigation by the command, it was discovered that the suspect was using many names such as Ayodeji Harry-young and Samuel Ayodeji, and also had multiple phone numbers, as well as numerous Automated Teller Machine cards bearing different names which he used to perpetrate fraud”.

On Monday 13th April, Osun Amotekun had previously arrested one Micheal Eze, 25, from Ebonyi State, who was working as a private security guard at GRA Osogbo for stealing nine air conditioners.

“The suspect was arrested after selling the air conditioners with each valued N400,000 to scrap buyers at the rate of N5,000 per one”.
