Gov. Oyetola Inaugurates Amotekun Boards
Governor Adegboyega Oyetola of Osun State has inaugurated Osun Security Network Agency code-named ‘Operation Amotekun Board and Amotekun Independent Complaints Board’.
Speaking at the inauguration in Osogbo, Governor Oyetola said the two bodies were products of the Osun Security Network Agency and Amotekun
Corps (establishment) law 2020.
He observed that Osun Security Network Agency and Amotekun Corps would offer improved security of lives and property and close the gaps
created by the obvious overstretching of the conventional security
agencies, while the Amotekun Independent Complaints Board would act as
checks and balances for the activities of the corps personnel.
Governor Oyetola said the 15-member Osun Security Network and Amotekun Corps Board would be chaired by General Ademola Aderibigbe, while General Bashir Adewinbi would serve as the corps commander.
He noted that the two generals have been selected on the strength of
their capabilities as proven military tacticians and astute administrators.
In a remark, General Aderibigbe assured the governor that they would
discharge their duties with all sense of responsibility.
