He commended  the state governor, Mr.  Rotimi Akeredolu for not using the Corps for political purpose since it was created two years ago but to strictly to fight insecurity in the state.

Also speaking, the state Chairman of the Nigeria Labour Congress, Sunday Adeleye, said “It is a known fact that the security network was mainly created to secure lives and property in the state, and certainly not to witchunt anyone.

We felt as a union to do the little we can to assist Amotekun by way of tasking ourselves to purchase motorcycles, as this would go a along way for the officers to reach the far rural areas in the forests where vehicles cannot reach.

“It is no longer news that government is still owing us salaries and allowances but what is important is the security of lives and property in the state,” he said.
The state Commander of Amotekun Corps, Chief Adetunji Adeleye, said the donation would assist the Corps to do more in protecting the people of the state, especially in the rural communities.

Adeleye solicited for more support for the corps, saying the motorcycles will be distributed to all the eighteen local government areas.

He assured that the security outfit would be on 24 hours patrol during the Easter celebration across the state.
