Sixty three suspected illegal miners from Zamfara State were on Thursday, June 4, apprehended by men of the Amotekun Corps, State of Osun, at Ikire, in Irewole local government area of the state.

The suspected illegal miners who were stocked inside a truck, despite boundary closure found their ways into the state of Osun, from far away Zamfara, northwest Nigeria.

It would be recalled that the Amotekun Corps in Osun had, at different occasions, in May, apprehended such dubious people around Osun/Oyo and Osun/Kwara boundaries, even during the total lockdown then and shown them the way back, so as to forestall the spread of the dreaded Corona Virus.
