Suspicious observers raised an alarm and alerted security agencies.

TVC News Nigeria gives us a report on a truck containing 150 travelers.

Operatives of Amotekun, a state-sponsored security force in Nigeria, have intercepted a truck containing not less than 150 travelers and some items in Oyo state. This is a significant development, as the Amotekun force is relatively new and has not yet had many opportunities to showcase its capabilities. The fact that it was able to quickly and effectively intercept this truck, despite its limited resources, is a positive sign for the future of the force. The truck was headed to Ogere in Ogun state from Zamfara when it was intercepted around Bodija market in Ibadan. This occurred after suspicious observers raised an alarm and alerted relevant security agencies.

This is a prime example of having a state policing and not federal policing. Amotekun is a state run local vigilante organization set up to protect the locals and their property. They are more aware of things going on around the local community and sworn to protect and serve. Credit is due to the Amotekun!!

These fake websites discovered using for PVC registration are means of harvesting people information in other to rig the forthcoming 2022 presidential election. The government should do thorough investigation.

The Security operatives on the road needs to be revamped because they are not really doing a good job in catching these criminals on the road.

This is brilliant; security begins with every one of us because when everyone is alert to danger and other things like this then the environment would be safer.

The fact that they were able to stop this truck in such a short amount of time and with such efficiency despite having a minimal amount of resources is an encouraging indicator for the direction of the force.

I hope our security gets better because this kind of thing will still keep happening and they will not catch them if they don’t double up their toughness on security.

The amotekun just saved lives, it’s obvious that this Fulani men are up to no good. These are the ways in which these fulani men sneak in to attack innocent people.

How did these people pass all the security on the road and they were not caught? Those police officers on the road are lagging behind again.

This clearly shows how bad the security of Nigeria is because I’m still wondering how these people got past several checking pint without being caught only for them to be apprehended by the amotekun.

God bless amotekun for uncovering these people because they can be very dangerous to the lives of others.

This is very good from amotekun, if they weren’t smart they wouldn’t have discovered these people and they can cause harm to innocent people.

These Northerners are definitely up to no good, if they had pure intentions will moving to another state they wouldn’t have had to sneak into the state. I’m proud of the amotekun they did a good job.

Our police force can’t be trusted with such kind of information because they will do anything. How can 150 pass several check point unnoticed only to be caught by the Amotekuns.Na wa o

The true is that the Nigerian has lost confidence in our police force. Amotekun are doing great if given the necessary support they will do more. The intercepted travelers amounting to 150 passed various check point but were not discovered. It shows how our security architecture is.

Insecurity at large! Amotekun’s, nice one!… There should standard checkpoints with sincere, diligent and committed security personnel’s. I don’t understand how these terrorists move and travel from one place to the other without being checked…something need to be done to check, asap to improve the security system in the country.

These local operations forces should be commended for their dedication and efforts to effectively safeguard their community. Despite their limited resources, they were able to detain a sizable number of nefarious individuals who would have gone on to cause disturbance in the state. To see more of this action from them, they really need to be enforced more.

I don’t know what this Fulani guys want to turn Nigeria to, I’m sure they were in their way to invade another western state but the amotekun came to the rescue. Kudos to them.

We actually need to be careful with the way people just travel from one state to the other. Terrorists are ravaging the entire society. Something needs to be done quickly to check the way these terrorists move and travel from one place to the other. These terrorists and bandits need to be dealt with unless they will destroy the whole nation.

The Amotekun have so far made a significant contribution to improving our level of security, offering local residents guide, and protecting people’s lives and property. They are doing fantastically.
