State Government has commenced fresh round of recruitment into the Western Nigeria Security Network codenamed Amotekun Corps in the state.

Recall that the Field Commander of the Corps, Mr Amitolu Shittu, had last year June announced that 13, 000 applicants had applied for recruitment.

Since then, no further development was heard concerning the exercise.

But a statement signed by the Secretary of Amotekun Board, Hassan Agbelekale, titled ‘Recruitment into Amotekun Corps’, said the government would commence recruitment of suitably qualified candidates into the corps in Osun.

The statement read in parts, “Government of Osun wishes to inform the general public that the Osun Security Network Agency and Amotekun Corps will commence the recruitment of suitably qualified candidates into Amotekun Corps.

“All interested candidates across all 30 local governments and area offices of the state are to collect free application forms at the Government House Annex, Oke Fia, Osogbo, from Monday 12th April, 2021 between 10am and 4pm daily, and submit their forms latest by Friday, 23rd April, 2021 at the same venue.”
