A new class of 360 members of the Amotekun Corps has been installed by Osun State Governor Adegboyega Oyetola.
As part of efforts to make them professionally savvy and prepare them for their tasks, they underwent a 23-day intensive training programme.
At the Passing-Out Parade for the new officers held in Ejigbo, Oyetola affirmed his administration’s commitment to the security, safety, and welfare of the people.
To protect the people and State, he urged the new personnel to display the highest level of professionalism, discipline, competence, integrity, and Omoluabi ethos.
In order for them to effectively protect us, we must all own the Corp and provide them with the information they need.
Assuring them of the state’s continued support, the governor encouraged collaboration between security agencies.
According to him, the government has procured 20 security vehicles that are equipped with communication devices to assist security operatives while on duty.
The vigilantes, recruited from across the local governments of the state, are providing Amotekun officials with intelligence on criminal movements and activities.
