Amotekun Arrests Two Suspects Faking Mental Illness



The South-West Security Network, popularly known as Amotekun, has arrested two suspected criminals pretending to be mentally-ill in Ondo State.

The state commandant, Adetunji Adeleye, revealed this while parading 26 suspected criminals at the command’s headquarters in Akure, the state capital, on Wednesday.

Adeleye noted that the suspects were arrested in different parts of the state for constituting security risk and nuisance and advised the public to be careful of impostors pretending to be mad persons.

He said, “We have two cases, and it’s becoming rampant almost every week, but on searching these mad people, we found expensive phones.

“We found out that the majority of them only pretended to be mad in order to gather information in the particular area where they intend to operate.

“We have two of them, one from Idanre and one from Igbara Oke. It is actually dangerous to accost a madman, anything could happen thereafter.
