Over 100 cows were over the weekend “arrested” by the men of the Ondo State Security Agency, otherwise known as Amotekun Corps for flouting the open grazing laws of the State.
The herders, who were suspected not to have registered with the State government, took to their heels upon sighting the operatives of the Amotekun Corps.
TOADY SPLASH gathered that the cows were caught grazing along the busy Akure/Ilesa highway.
Disclosing this, the Commander of the Corps in the State, Adetunji Adeleye stated that the move was part of efforts at curbing crimes in the State and as well enforcing the directives of the State government that the streets and forest reserves be rid of unregistered herdsmen.
According to Adeleye, the cows were intercepted and arrested at the boundary of Osun and Ondo State, adding that it took his men about 30 kilometres walk to control the cows to the corps headquarters in Akure, the State capital.
