Instead, authorities confirmed the discovery of illegal immigrants in a localized area within the council’s jurisdiction. Swift action was taken as these individuals were promptly apprehended and handed over to security agencies for thorough assessment and appropriate interventions.

Further investigations into the matter revealed that the suspects have been relocated from Elemoro Police Station, where they were initially detained, to the Police Headquarters in Alagbon for comprehensive scrutiny.

“The safety and security of our residents are of paramount importance to us. I want to reassure the community that the reported kidnapping syndicate cell in Igando-Oloja is entirely false. Our swift action and collaboration with security agencies led to the apprehension of illegal immigrants, not kidnappers.
