Amotekun State Security Recruitment Exercise To Commence Next Week - Gov. Akeredolu

Governor, Mr. Rotimi Akeredolu
Ondo State Governor, Mr. Rotimi Akeredolu, has come out to disclose when the recruitment forms for the Operation Amotekun outfit will be ready.

The governor, who spoke through his Special Adviser on Security Matter, Alhaji Jimoh Dojumo, said the recruitment process for the operation will begin next week and that any form outside at the moment is fake and the masses shouldn’t fall to it.

He said; 

“We are yet to issue out forms and if there is any form that is out now in Ondo State, it is illegal, we have drafted the forms but we have not issued them out.

“The forms would be out next week. What we want to do is to first recruit, after the recruitment we will issue out the forms.

“All the traditional rulers and community leaders in the state would be made to sign as guarantors of whoever we want to recruit in their communities.”

Meanwhile, the Convener of Re-elect Buhari Movement in the 2019 presidential election, Mr. Emmanuel Umohinyang, has advised that the police works with the officials of Operation Amotekun so that it doesn’t turn into a terrorist group in the long run.

In an interview with The PUNCH on Thursday, Mr. Emmanuel proposed that the operational arm should rest with the police, while the administrative arm should be with the state government for the smooth operation of Amotekun.

He also advised operatives of Operation Amotekun not to wear a uniform so that they could successfully carry out the role of information gathering.

The political analyst said;

“Let the commissioner of police take care of the operations arm in terms of deployment and supervising them. I do not also see the need to put them in uniforms if they are to be an intelligence-gathering unit.

“They are to live with the people and share information with the police. If you put them in uniforms, they will be easily identified.”
