Operatives of the Ondo State Security Network Agency, popularly known as Amotekun Corps as confiscated 80 motorcycles in the state.

The motorcycles were confiscated for violating the laws restricting the use of okada throughout the state from 6 p.m. to 6 a.m.

It will be recalled that the Ondo state government had ordered last month that the ban on motorcycle operations outside of 6am and 6pm and nightclub activities after midnight be enforced.

According to Ondo state commander of the Amotekun Corps, Akogun Adetunji Adeleye, the order was an action to cleanse the state of criminally inclined individuals and organisations.

He confirmed the arrest of the motorcycles, disclosing his men had been put in a good position to make the arrest of the violators.

According to him, only law enforcement officers or those performing important services are permitted to move at that period because they are required to have valid identity cards before riding motorbikes.

Adeleye asserted that the government will strictly enforce the restriction.

“No movement of Okada again, in that way, anybody seen with Okada at night will be assumed as a criminal and will be handled as such,” he said.
