Amotekun Commander Chief Adetunji Adeleye said before the Ipinsha incident, the Corps had earlier arrested of over 200 cattle on the Akure- Ilesha expressway.
Chief Adeleye noted that the corps’ operation will continue in furtherance of government’s commitment to protect lives and properties of citizenry.
