Ondo State Governor, Oluwarotimi Akeredolu, has approved the recruitment of 350 persons into the Amotekun Corps to ease the pressure on the Ondo State Security Network.

Akeredolu announced this at an award programme organised by Ondo State Agribusiness Empowerment Centre (OSAEC) on Tuesday in Akure.

He said that more operational vehicles and motorcycles would be purchased to aid the corps’ operation in the state.

The governor, who noted that there was a time Agricultural investors were leaving the state until the advent of Amotekun, said “We have agreed to employ 350 personnel into the Amotekun Corps in the state because of the pressure on Amotekun.

“Operational vehicles and motorcycles will be purchased too to ease their work,” he said.

He said there would soon be Amotekun stations in rural areas, as those places are not on the road but in the bush.
