Amotekun Rescues Akeredolu’s Chief of Staff’s Wife, Arrests Ondo Monarch’s Suspected Killers

The Ondo State Security Network in collaboration with hunters and some vigilantes have rescued Mrs Ale, the wife of the Chief of Staff to Governor Rotimi Akeredolu.


Her release came barely two days after she was kidnapped by gunmen on the Ondo-Akure Highway.

The Commander of the Amotekun Corps in the state, Mr Adetunji Adeleye, who confirmed the release of Mrs Ale to journalists on Saturday said the security outfit had also arrested some suspects in connection with the killing of the Olufon of Ifon, Oba Israel Adeusi.

The monarch was shot dead by some gunmen suspected to be kidnappers on Thursday on his way back to Ifon in the Ose Local Government Area after attending a meeting in Akure, the state capital.

Adeleye said, “We thank God for the achievement, it was not easy. But we are able to arrest some persons in connection with the matter.

“We are closing in on the hoodlums. We also arrested some persons at Elegbeka in connection with the killing of the monarch. But they are under interrogation and they are helping us with useful information.”
