Seyi Makinde, the governor of Oyo State, has warned criminals to keep away from the state, saying that any effort will be their last.
Makinde issued the warning while turning over 100 operational cars to the Western Nigerian Security Network’s ‘Operation Amotekun.’
The governor stated that his government will continue to maintain a zero-tolerance policy toward crime, and that all security agencies in the state would be given enough support.
He said that, in addition to the 1,500 people already working for the organization, another 500 people would be hired to help it expand its capabilities.
“Today, we are here strengthening the Amotekun Corps,” Governor Makinde said during the event held at the secretariat in Agodi, Ibadan. “We will continue to listen to you. We will continue to fulfill the promises we made to you before you gave us the mandate.
“Let me also repeat that if you see something, say something and it will be sorted by Amotekun. To criminals and criminally minded individuals, I was told that they usually import criminal elements into Oyo State.”
