The police in Ondo have arrested 150 men suspected of being members of the Boko Haram sect.
The men, who claimed that they were farmers are not terrorists, were armed with various weapons.
The police spokesperson for the state, Femi Joseph said that the men’s defence was being investigated and would release them if they were indeed found to be farmers.
“We have to be completely sure that they are not members of the Boko Haram sect before we can allow them to go,” Joseph said
Boko Haram has been largely operative in the North East of Nigeria and reports of forays into other parts of the country are yet to be proven.
