About one hundred and forty travellers from Zamfara en route Ogere, Ogun State loaded in a truck were intercepted at Bodija area of Ibadan by men of the Oyo State Western Security Network Outfit- Amotekun Corps, on Tuesday.
Some residents around the Bodija Market area had notified Amotekun of their suspicion on sighting the truck loaded with bags of onions, beans, potatoes, and motorcycles with Northern travellers comprising men, women, youths and children stuffed in between.
Upon interrogation at the Amotekun office, the driver of the truck, Abdullahi Aliu, said he was conveying the items and travellers to Ogere, Ogun State, and only offloaded some items at Bodija market.
According to reports, after search and interrogation, security agencies said no incriminating item was found on the travellers and in the truck.
The security agencies, subsequently, resolved to escort the travellers to the Ogun state border for them to continue their journey to Ogere, after their destination had been confirmed.
Special Assistant to Governor Seyi Makinde on Arewa, Ahmed Muritala, who was present at the Amotekun Office, agreed that the travellers be escorted out of the state.
