TheCable had reported how the youths were tagged “Boko Haram” and arrested in Okitipupa LGA of Ondo by the state chapter of the Western Nigeria Security Network, Amotekun, on April 29.

The youths, who arrived the LGA in a truck, had said they were in the town to undergo military training in the barracks to become employed as security guards.

Adetunji Adeleye, Amotekun commander in the state, had said upon interrogation, it was discovered that the youths, who hailed from Kano and Jigawa states, were brought to the town for employment by a non-profit organisation for purported security training.

Donald Ojogo, Ondo commissioner for information and orientation, who commented on the incident, had described it as “a precarious one”, saying the development would have degenerated into jungle justice if the security agents had not handled it professionally.

In the viral video seen by TheCable on Tuesday, the three men who were being questioned, spoke on their involvement in the crime.

The alleged prime suspect in the video, who gave his name as Ayo, Reverend Bayo and doctor Folajimi Williams at the same time, admitted to receiving money from the victims.

He also confessed to have written a “fake” letter to the commanding officer of the Nigerian army in Ondo state about mobilising the youths for the purported training.

When contacted, Tee-Leo Okoro, spokesman for the Ondo police, told TheCable that the command had received the video but was yet to confirm if the persons being interviewed are the culprits.
