The men of the Ondo State Security Network Agency, codenamed Amotekun have apprehended a six-man gang that specialised in drugging and hypnotising their victims during operations.
The State Commander of Amotekun Corps, Mr Adetunji Adeleye disclosed that the suspects were nabbed after they were tracked to their hideout.
Adeleye stated that the arrest of the syndicate was part of the successes recorded in its drive to ensure a crime-free Yuletide in the State.
He also revealed that other suspects involved in kidnapping, rape and armed robbery were also arrested by his men.
According to the Amotekun Commander, Adeleye, the gang “use chemical substance to spray the room of the victims, so, they will sleep off; they will break the burglary, enter their houses, dispose them of their valuables while some of them are raped.
“They don’t normally have direct access to the victims, what they do is to jump across their fences, and pump in with a syringe, and spray chemicals into their rooms.
“They will wait for about 30 to 40 minutes, every living thing inside the room sleeps off. So, whatever they do, you don’t know again.”
He stressed that upon the conclusion of investigation, the suspects will be arraigned in court.
