Commander of the Ondo Security Network Agency also known as Amotekun Corps, Chief Adetunji Adeleye, who disclosed this at a press briefing in Akure, said four kidnapped victims were rescued during the search for killers of Oba Adeusi.
Chief Adeleye said the arrested suspects were undergoing interrogations.
Adeleye who debunked insinuations that his men were not in the bush said surveillance has been mounted at the farm of Chief Olu Falae to prevent further attack on the farm by suspected herdsmen.
He said the herdsmen have fled the area.
He said some of the suspects were caught in the act of committing robbery.
“We observed a downward trend after the ban of okada at night so we had to change tactics. That was why we launched the Operation Clean Up which is intense patrol across the nook and cranny of Akure and other parts of the state.
“The idea is to take the war to the kidnappers, criminals or wherever they are hiding and we have recorded huge success. Amotekun operates in the bush, forest, water and anywhere.”
On the arrest of some cows, Chief Adeleye said the cows were caught destroying a farm and the herders fled.
He said the cows would not be released until the owners reached amicable agreement with the farmers whose crops were destroyed.
