Ogun State Amotekun Officials Were Carefully Chosen – Dapo Abiodun



Governor Dapo Abiodun has inaugurated the state security outfit, the Amotekun Corps in Ogun.

He recently spoke during the inauguration in Abeokuta, and Nigerians have been reacting.

According to him, the operatives of the Amotekun security outfit were carefully chosen and trained to secure lives and property, so residents have nothing to worry about.

He added that the state government has provided the outfit with vehicles, motorcycles, communication gadgets, technical back-ups, and the political will for an effective take-off and efficient operation.

His words, “Your role is primarily to prevent crime. You are to do this through systematic intelligence gathering and collaboration with other law enforcement agencies, especially the security network agencies of other states.”

“Let me at this juncture reiterate and say unequivocally that no part of Ogun will be a safe haven for criminals and criminality in whatever form or guise.”

“Permit me to recall that at the South-West Security Summit that was held on June 25, 2019, at Ibadan, the governments of the six South-West states of Lagos, Ogun, Oyo, Osun, Ondo and Ekiti agreed to establish a security outfit to be named “Amotekun”.

“The establishment of the security outfit is part of a holistic approach determined to tackle insecurity in the region.”

“Governors and leaders of the South-West came together and decided on the need to complement the efforts of the Nigeria Police and other security agencies in different states, especially with a truly indigenous security agency that understands the terrain.”

“We came up with the establishment of this security outfit code-named ‘Amotekun’.”
