Training the first batch of qualified candidates for the Osun State Security Network Agency took place at the Wole Soyinka Government High School, Ejigbo, Osun State.
During the ongoing inspection of the new candidates, The Chairman of the Governing Board of Osun State Security Network, General Isah Aderibigbe, noted that exceptional and experienced individuals would have to train the recruits to discharge their duties as expected, adding that members of the Amotekun would be deployed for immediate operation after their first training.
While imploring the newly inducted candidates to obey all instructions given to them, General Aderibigbe expressed how he hopes that after the first training, the recruits would become persons of quality who would use the expertise learnt in camp to protect the lives and properties of citizens in the State through fair justice and judgement.
Corp Commander and area commander General Bashir Adewinbi warned criminal elements using Osun State as a haven to vacate because the corps would not tolerate criminals activities lightly again.
Adewinbi called on the state’s residents to rest assured as the recruits of the Amotekun corps were duty-bound to ensure they provide a security blanket for them.
Camp Commandant and Chief Instructor Captain Ajibolu Fatai had earlier instructed the recruits to take their training serious because knowledge acquired during training would be useful on the field throughout the years they would spend in service.
Osun State Security Network had earlier announced last week that it would commence training for 360 recruits, out of which 90 are confirmed to be women.
