Also, late last year, abducted students and staff of a secondary school. The criminals, in addition, carried out several attacks at Ese-Odo community around Ajakpa, Safarogbo and Balowo areas. “The need to flush them out from their hideout became necessary to ensure peace and security in Ondo state. Sadly in the process, one gallant soldier paid the supreme price while 3 others sustained gunshot wounds.”.
