Oyo State Security Network Agency, codenames Amotekun has arrested a tailor, name for sowing fake uniform of the corps to members of the public.
The commandant of the security outfit, Col. Olayinka Olayanju (rtd), disclosed this when he made a telephone call on Southwest Political Circuit, an interactive programme on Fresh FM 105.9.
He said some unscrupulous persons were arrested around Challenge area of Ibadan, the state capital, adding that they have been handed over to the police for further investigation.
He said: “We heard these people were sowing and selling the fake Amotekun uniform to some people particularly at Lagelu area and we are presently at the area to uncover the truth.
“Our fear is that if the uniforms get to the wrong hands and they use them to commit crimes, people will believe it is the handiwork of real Amotekun personnel. We are really afraid of this development because bad news spreads more quickly than good news”.
He urged residents to cooperate with the outfit by providing useful and timely information, explaining that measures have been put in place to check the excesses of members of the corps. He assured that any member of the corps found violating the rule of his or her engagement will be dealt with.
