Ondo State Security Network Agency, otherwise known as Amotekun have arrested a middle-aged man, Sunday Ayenutaju, who allegedly killed an Okada rider while trying to snatch his motorcycle.
The 32-year-old culprit allegedly committed the crime at Omin-nla within Ore axis in Odigbo Local Government Area of Ondo sytate.
Ayenitaju was accused of conspiring with his friend to commit the crime on Thursday.
Luck was said to have run against the suspects after the duo killed the unidentified victim when the Amotekun operatives swooped on them.
With his friend escaping from the scene, Sunday told the corps that it was his friend who lured him into the evil act.
“My childhood friend, who is popularly known as ‘Akaba’ invited me to join him in snatching Okada in Ore. He told me he had been in the business for a very long time, and it’s lucrative. He showed me over 60 bikes he had acquired and asked me to join him. Although he has been inviting me for a very long time, I refused.”
Describing the incident as pathetic, the Commander of the corps, Adetunji Adeleye, urged everyone in the state to be security conscious, especially in this festive period.
