Northerners who were caught hiding themselves in-between sacs of beans should not have done so

According to a news that was published by various newspapers yesterday in Nigeria, it was made known that the men of Western Nigeria Security Network, popular referred to as Amotekun operatives, intercepted a trailer loaded with beans and arrested 18 northerners who hid themselves in-between the sacs containing the beans the trailer was transporting.

According to the information that was given, it was made known that the Amotekun operatives arrested the suspects along Arakale road in Akure, the state capital, during a top and search operation and after the arrest was made, The Northern Conscience for 2023 and some people that reacted to it on the internet said that, it is wrong to arrest the 18 northerners and parade them.

However in my own opinion, I will categorically say that, the 18 people that were arrested made mistake, by hiding themselves inside sac of beans, as if it was illegal for them to move freely in their own country.

In Nigeria, there is freedom of movement for all citizens and due to that, the 18 northerners were not supposed to hide from security operatives, as if they were carrying incriminating objects, as this made operatives suspicious and made them to interrogate them, in order to find out what they were up to.

We all know that Ondo State, has been facing security challenges for some months, which includes kidnapping, farmers/herders' clashes and due to this, the security men safeguarding the state will be extra vigilant, in order to curtail such occurrences and besides, they should not be blamed for arresting them because, information that was given by Vanguard Newspaper made it known that, after Amotekun operatives asked them about their destinations, some of them said they were going to Sokoto, some said they were going to Katsina and because of this, they were all handed over to the head of Hausa Community in Ondo State, to take them back to their states.
