Men of Ekiti State Security Network Agency known as Amotekun and Oodua Peoples Congress (OPC) have intercepted two trucks loaded with no fewer than 15 men suspected to be Fulani herdsmen in Ikere Ekiti, Ekiti State.
The men, who were loaded in two trucks were reportedly stopped along Ado Ekiti road on Tuesday evening in the town by the Amotekun corps and OPC and a quick search revealed some bows, arrows and daggers in the vehicle.
It was gathered that there were suspected Herdsmen hidden under grass sheets in the truck.
Upon interrogation, the men were reported to have told the Amotekun operatives that they were going from Ondo state to Ado Ekiti, the Ekiti State Capital.
The search was said to have attracted residents who trooped to the scene, but to avoid crisis, the security agents were said to have led the trucks and its occupants to the police station.
They were said to have been handed over to the police at the station for further interrogation and search.
