Amotekun:Oyo Takes 47,000 Applications For 2,000 Jobs

Chairman, Oyo State Security Network Agency, and Amotekun Corps, General Kunle Togun, has disclosed that no fewer than forty-seven thousand (47,000) people applied for 2,000 Amotekun jobs in the state.

Togun made this known in Ibadan during the screening and verification exercise that commenced recently across the state.

Governor from the six south-western states had agreed to form the Western Nigeria Security Network also known as Amotekun in a bid to put an end to security challenges in the geopolitical zone.

But Togun, while addressing journalists disclosed that a background check on criminal records of the applicants will also be done.

He said, “Over 47,000 persons applied, while we are to take 2,000 for now. Graduates, school certificate holders and those that do not have any educational background applied.

“We asked them questions on what operations they had done in the past. We want to know if they are experienced and active, what role they played in their various groups. We’ll also check to know if they have had criminal records.

“Some gave incoherent information about where they came from; some did not give facts about the local government areas they claim to hail from.” He said.
