In a bid to curb societal menaces like kidnapping, murders and others, the Oyo State chapter of the Southwest Security Network, codenamed Amotekun has uncovered and recovered four AK rifles, military camouflages and about sixty rounds of 7.62 mm ammunition, alleged to have been abandoned by kidnappers operating in an undisclosed forest in the State.

The Commandant of the Corp, Rtd Colonel Olayinka Olayanju, explained that the Corps Operatives have been combing the forests in some parts of the state following the recent abductions of passengers along the Lagos/Ibadan expressway.

He added his men discovered the items in one of the forests, after a tip-off that some gunmen were cited in one of the undisclosed forests.

He equally noted that his Officers were still on ground in the forests with a view to nabbing the criminal elements.

Other items unrecovered were wraps of Cannabis, raincoat and two Nigerian Army caps and one beret.
