Makinde Donates 100 Patrol Vehicles To Amotekun Corps, Warns Criminals To Steer Clear Of Oyo


Oyo state Governor Seyi Makinde has warned criminally minded individuals to steer clear of the state as his government would not relent in strengthening security architecture in the state to ensure safety of lives and properties.

The Governor who gave the warning at the official handover ceremony of 100 security patrol vehicles to the state security network codenamed “Amotekun” insisted that he remained committed to the four pillars of his administration’s policy thrust which include security.

Governor Makinde also assured that apart from donating patrol vehicles, he would recruit more security personnel into the security outfit, upgrade their communication structure and adequately equip them for quick response to security concerns in the state.


He equally commended executive chairmen of local government areas in the state for their synergy with the state government, noting that rather than struggle for autonomy for some component units, Nigeria required restructuring of various elements of government for it to work accordingly.

Speaking earlier, the chairman of Amotekun corps, Bridgedier General Kunle Togun Rtd said the contribution of Governor Seyi Makinde in positioning the security outfit remain outstanding in the south west and commended the Governor for his foresight and commitment to security in the state.
