Written by Adewale Adeyemi on January 16, 2023
The Southwest security outfit, Amotekun Corps, has firmed up security strategies to counter the rising activities of criminals, especially kidnappings, in the zone.
Some of the measures are an intensification of monitoring of crime-prone places like forests and improved collaboration with other security agencies.
The Nation newspaper reports that Ekiti State Commandant of the Amotekun Corps, Joe Komolafe and Osun State Field Commander of the outfit, Amitolu Shittu revealed the measures amid reports on the kidnap of a Catholic cleric in Ekiti State and the threat by abductors to kill the two Osun farmers in their custody.
