The Commander of the Corps in the state,Chief Adetunji Adeleye, said the cows and the herders were arrested at the Oke Ala Area of Akure, the state capital.
“We have arrested about 180 cows, they are in our custody as we speak. We intend to release them to the owners after complying with the regulations as contained in the anti-open grazing law.
“We have also detained the three herders arrested with the cows. Their boss has come, so we are dealing with the boss now,” the Amotekun boss said.
