He noted that with haul of weapons seized, the Amotekun corps had recorded a breakthrough in ridding the forests of bandits and kidnappers that were unleashing terror on people in terms of banditry and kidnapping.
Toogun promised that the corp will not relent in its efforts in flushing out criminal-minded foreigners.
