Three officers of the Ondo State Security Network Agency, codenamed Amotekun Corps, have been dismissed for professional misconduct.

Commander of the corps, Akogun Adetunji Adeleye made this known  on Tuesday in Akure, while parading seven suspects who were alleged of human trafficking and housebreaking.

He said the three dismissed officers would be prosecuted in line with the regulations guiding the corps.

Adeleye also revealed that the corps will be deploying 700 officers across the 18 local government areas of the state to guarantee the safety of lives and properties in the state.

The commander said: “We want to inform the public that we have three of the Amotekun officers that had gone through the normal process of court martial and had been dismissed today for professional misconduct and we will ensure that adequate punishments even after the dismissal are given to them.

“The penalty of what they did is to dismiss them and we have dismissed them accordingly.”

Adeleye further stated:”Our parade today is more of sensitization. We have seven suspected criminals and we want to inform the public that you should assist us so that we can assist you too.

“We recovered a vehicle that was snatched by armed bandits and shortly after a resident of the particular community around Akure town raised the alarm.

“This is to confirm that response to distress calls is working for us to reduce crime to  the minimum. Again, the Easter festive is around the corner and the end of fasting. And we know that people will travel  during the holiday. We will be deploying 700 officers across the 18 local government areas of the state to guarantee the safety of lives and property in the state.

“Out of the seven suspected criminals we are parading, we have three that were arrested for human trafficking cases and we have four others that were arrested for housebreaking and we were able to retrieve all the items stolen during their operations which would be handed over to the rightful owners.

Adeleye encouraged the people of the state to give timely information to reduce crimes in the state.
