According to information obtained, the corps made the arrest in response to information about a terrorist invasion into the southwest of Nigeria.

Five women were among the suspects; they were concealed inside the trailers behind bundles of beans and rice.

They were stopped on Thursday by corps members who were conducting a “stop and search” after becoming suspicious of their movements in the Sango section of the Akure-Ado Expressway.

The state Commander of Amotekun, Akogun Adetunji Adeleye, said the suspects were concealed behind bags of rice inside the truck.
