    Governor Lucky Aiyedatiwa of Ondo State has ordered security agencies to beef up security, as the funeral of former Governor Oluwarotimi Akeredolu begins this week.

    He ordered security agencies to fish out kidnappers and criminals in the state as well as prevent security breaches in any part of state.

    Aiyedatiwa’s directive is coming on the heels of last Friday’s kidnap of passengers of an 18-seater bus between Ayere in Kogi State and Akunu in Ondo State.

    The abductors killed the driver of the bus.

    Amotekun Commander Adetunji Adeleye said combined security forces had continued search for the victims.

    He said: “As at yesterday morning, a combined team of security men, specifically soldiers from Kogi and Ondo, police from Kogi and Ondo, and Amotekun from Ondo joined hands to fish out the perpetrators of the last kidnap around Akunu/Ayere axis in Kogi/Ondo.

    “The actual thing you saw on social media happened in between those two communities and we have been raising the alarm that in places that we don’t have the grassroots local security that we can work with, we have been having issues, but we are happy, however, that they joined and collaborated with us and the search still continues.

    “We have been able to go this far because the governor specifically gave a directive to fish out these perpetrators of evil, especially along the boundary, and he further gave a directive to all security agencies to ensure that this week and next week, we will be honouring our late governor, the father of Amotekun in the Southwest, that there must be no security breach.

    “Arrangements are being put in place to ensure people come in happily and freely to celebrate the exit of an icon that all of us know.”
