Osun State residents have been warned not to harbour criminal elements in their neighbourhood.
Amitolu Shittu, the Field Commander of the Western Security Network Agency, Amotekun Corps, delivered the warning on Wednesday in Osogbo while participating in a radio programme. He also revealed that the security organisation is prepared for combat.
Shittu also issued a dire warning about the consequences of any terrorist attack on Osun.
Shittu urged locals to report suspicious activity when they saw unfamiliar faces in their neighbourhoods, saying that the Yoruba race was not a coward because they valued peace and despised bloodshed.
“We are valiant warriors in the land, in the sea, in the air and we are warlords of warlords who are great in battle; we are unrepentant warriors on any battlefield.
“We do not take anything that has to do with securing the lives of people and property lightly. We rapidly work on any piece of information that concerns security to ascertain whether it is genuine or not,” he said.
Highlighting his achievements in office, he disclosed that the outfit had since its inception apprehended a lot of criminal elements, including armed robbers, rapists, cultists, marauders, and hooligans, who are all cooling their heels in prison.
