THE Western Nigeria Security Network (WNSN), otherwise code-named “Amotekun Corps” which is saddled with the responsibility of curbing cases of kidnapping, rape and destruction of farmlands in Oyo State was attacked by some bandits killing one of the members of the outfit in Oyo State.

The victim whose name was given as Sulaiman Quadri, was hacked to death by the hoodlums that stormed the Atiba Local Government Area of the State.

Vanguard reliably gathered that the bandits numbering 11 invaded a farm, Living Farms which is located at Fiditi Town in Oyo community.

The Amotekun corps were said to have provided security for the staff of the farm.

When the bandits struck, it was Quadri who was shot dead while his colleague, Amo Bello Yisau, sustained life-threatening injuries.

He was said to have been rushed to the General Hospital, Oyo where he is receiving treatment.
