Two suspected kidnappers have been reportedly killed by men of the southwest security outfit, popularly known as Amotekun, in Iwajowa Local Government Area, Oyo State
The state Commandant of Amotekun, Olayinka Olayanju, told journalists that the kidnappers were killed during an operation by the Amotekun security outfit on Friday, July 30.
HumAngle, an online newspaper, quoted him as saying, “It is true. There was an operation yesterday afternoon.
“With the support of local vigilantes and hunters, we killed two of them,” he added
Recall that reports indicated that the kidnappers launched an attack on Iwere Ile town on Friday in a failed attempt to abduct some community residents. Officers of Amotekun engaged the assailants in a gun duel and eliminated two of them.
Killings and kidnappings are not a threat only in Northern Nigeria—the southwest is also badly hit by the menace.
