    THE Oyo State Security Network Agency, also known as Amotekun, has arrested two bandits of Fulani extraction with assorted firearms in the Ibarapa area of the state.

    The media unit of Amotekun in the state said in a statement on Thursday that the bandits were arrested with one AK-47 rifle, one pump action and a double-barrel gun at Lanlate.
