The Amotekun Corps Commander, Adetunji Adeleye, said this on Wednesday in Akure when he paraded the suspects.

The development was confirmed by the Commander of Amotekun in Ondo State, Adetunji Adeleye, on Friday.
The suspects included a kidnap syndicate, motorcycle snatching gang, cattle rustlers and a rapist.
The suspects identified simply as Dorcas, Ebunoluwa, Toyin and Boluwatife, were nabbed over their alleged involvement in the case of two children whose trafficking was botched by Amotekun operatives at the point of being taken out of the country.
The slain student was a National Diploma 1 student of the Science Laboratory Technology Department in the institution.
The group said this in a statement issued by its President, Famakinwa Lucaskakaki, and made available on Saturday.
Recall that the Commander of security outfit in Ondo State disclosed last week that it had apprehended those responsible for the massacre.
This was contained in a statement by Chief Press Secretary to the Governor, Richard Olatunde, on Saturday in Akure.
The assailants left 40 persons dead and about 60 others injured in the attack carried out on June 5, 2022 during service.
The group said the worrisome aspect of the attack was that the relevant authorities appeared unconcerned.
The Amotekun Field Commander in the state, Comrade Amitolu Shittu, made this known when he paraded the suspect.
Let us take, for instance, when Boko Haram started their mayhem in Borno and Yobe States. A lot of the people were unconcerned because those being attacked were security agents. By the time they turned on the people, everyone knew something collectively should have been done earlier to nip the menace in the bud. But we didn’t because it was the security agents that were being targeted. And by the time they came for us, we knew we had goofed.
Two leaders of the kidnap gang were also arrested by the personnel of the security outfit after the payment of N1 million out of the N2 million ransom demanded before the release of the corps members.
The 35-year-old suspected ritualist was paraded by the security outfit on Monday after he was caught with the human parts.
