The State Ogun State Government has declared its readiness in setting up its security outfit, code-named ’AMOTEKUN’, to ensure a seamless relationship between it and other conventional security agencies.
The Special Adviser to the Governor on Security, AIG Olusola Subair (Rtd.), while taking his turn to brief the National Economic Council Implementation Committee team from Abuja said before now, the government has been taking its time in advancing harmonious working relationship between the outfit and other security agencies, adding that fund for the purchase of necessary equipment and security gadgets, as well as patrol vehicles for the agency, has been drawn from the pool of the Ogun State Security Trust Fund.
Subair also noted that the State government was on the verge of installing Close Circuit Television (CCTV) at strategic locations across the State, especially in border areas to monitor security threats.
The Security Chief also informed that the State was also proposing three security control centres, as well as building a safe city from where all security intelligence would be harnessed, while monitoring the movements of security personnel.
