The release reads “The Kwara South Joint Community Security Watch has commended the ongoing sustained bombardment of Kwara bushes by joint security patrols, leading to massive successes nipping insecurity in the bud in the State.
“This expectation arose from successful ongoing military operations of combing deadly forests in parts of Edu, Patigi and Ifelodun local government areas of the state, where bandits and kidnappers hibernate to unleashed mayhem on the innocent people.
“There’s been a successful ongoing military operations both of land and aerial support using helicopters along the axis of Ndanaku, Gbugbu, Babanla and Oreke forests for three days running, which he said, was giving the bandits sleepless nights but a high hope to the citizens.

Elder Oyin Zubair however cautioned neighbouring communities of the identified hotspots not to provide alternative shelters for the fleeing suspected hoodlums, as they are running helter skelter out of the forests to secure a new place to hide.
