Ekiti State Security Network, otherwise known as Amotekun Corps, has revealed that the training for its recruits would begin on Sunday, September 27.
The Corps Commander, Brig. Gen Joe Komolafe, who disclosed this on Wednesday, September 23, said the 325 successful candidates shortlisted out of the 3,261 applicants invited for the just concluded screening would participate in the three-week training beginning on Sunday at the Ekiti State University, Ifaki-Ekiti campus.
Brig. Gen Joe Komolafe said, “With the recruitment of the corps, the spate of insecurity will be reduced to the barest minimum. Criminal-minded elements should steer clear of Ekiti State or meet their Waterloo. Successful candidates should resume to camp within the stipulated period. There would be no further registration after the cut-off date of the midnight Wednesday, 30 September 2020. Only successful candidates whose names appear on the Amotekun website are to come to the training camp with two white T-shirts, two white shorts, two pairs of white canvas shoes, hand sanitizers, face masks, toiletries, and other items.”
According to the Amotekun commander, the recruitment exercise had been transparent with personnel from the Amotekun agency and certified security experts involved in the process.
