Oyo State governor, Engr. Seyi Makinde, has revealed that terrorists are entering the South West region of the country through Oke Ogun area of the state.
Makinde, who spoke when he visited Saki, said terrorists and bandits from Mali and other West African countries are entering through the border in Saki, one of the towns in the state.
He noted that the issue of banditry is one of the challenges his government is battling with, adding that the inauguration of Amotekun Corps was yielding positive results.
The governor stated that Amotekun Corps had been able to flush out some bandits terrorising residents of the state.
“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 al,” the governor said.
