The Oyo State governor, Seyi Makinde has uncovered plot by terrorists from Mali in Africa to enter the border in Saki, one of the towns in Ogun State, South Western Nigeria.
Speaking during his visit to Saki in Ogun State, the Governor identified banditry as one of the challenges his government is battling with.
He assured however that the inauguration of Amotekun Corps, has started to yield positive results in South West region of Nigeria.
According to him, Amotekun Corps had been able to flush out some bandits terrorising residents of the State.
He said, “So, it was really tasking. Of course, in our locality here, the issue of banditry is also another issue.
“For instance, Saki shares an international border and it is more of an international issue because we have bandits all the way from Mali that are trying to cross.
“Once they gain entrance into anywhere they can operate, they will stay there.
“When we inaugurated Amotekun, you gave us your support. When some bandits went to the bush at Kishi, we were able to flush them out with all the efforts of all of us here. So, we want to use this opportunity to say thank you to you all”.
