Confirming his arrest while addressing journalists in Ado Ekiti, the commander of the corps, Retired Brigadier Joe Komolafe, said, ”The suspect went to a local area in Omuo and started spending the money before we got a hint and went after him.

“He said he specializes in buying kola and bitter kola, saying he was also paid with cash in Lagos.

“On interrogation, he confessed to the crime and said he was given N250,000 from a factory in Lagos, but only N100,000 was found with him as he had spent some.”

Komolafe said the command would hand him over to the police for further investigation. The Amotekun commander urged members of the public to be careful, especially during the current cash crunch, so as not to fall victim.
