Akeredolu vows adequate equipment as Amotekun graduates new corps
Written by Olarotimi Oshin on September 27, 2022
Following the controversies over the arming of subnational security agencies in the country, the Governor of Ondo State, Rotimi Akeredolu, has renewed his commitment to providing adequate equipment for the state’s security network, Amotekun.
The governor said on Monday that the Amotekun Corps would be armed as backed by law, otherwise, the training would be inadequate and the lives of the “great patriots” would be placed in danger.
Mr Akeredolu spoke during the passing out parade of Courses 3 and 4 of Amotekun Corps.
Royal Times recall that the Governor had last week week stated that he would be acquiring sophisticated weapons for the outfit to protect his people, and chided the Federal Government for approving the same for Katsina State while depriving Amotekun of the same privilege.
