Olayanju added that the two suspects were arrested around fresh FM area.

He said, “Two people have been arrested for sewing Amotekun uniform.


Olayanju added that the suspects have been handed over to police at Yemetu.

“We heard these people were sowing and selling the fake Amotekun uniform to some people particularly at Lagelu area and we are presently at the area to uncover the truth.
