Forty-two persons from the northern part of Nigeria who invaded Ondo state recently have been returned to their states of origin.
While parading them in Akure, the state capital, the commander of the Amotekun corps, Adetunji Adeleye said the men came for a security training in a private firm.
“The explanation provided by the men and women were not satisfactory to the state government,” Adeleye said.
These men and women were first sighted in Okitipupa local government area of Ondo state on Thursday.
Their arrival created unnecessary tension and apprehension among residents of the community.
These people who came from Jigawa and Kano states were said to have come for a mission unknown to the government.
Adeleye added that they could not give satisfactory answers about their mission, after interrogation.
He said the invaders would be escorted by his men to the state boundary.
The state commissioner for Information and Orientation, Donald Ojogo, said the action of government was meant to ensure that they return safely to their bases.
According to him, government will continue to ensure that people whose mission are not clear are not allowed to stay in the state.
The 42 persons had since been led out of the state by men of the Amotekun corps. They were moved in different buses with their luggage.
