Amotekun Corps Commandant of the Ekiti State chapter, Brigadier-General Joe Komolafe (Rtd.) has assured that the security outfit will be deploying ancient, local and modern security techniques to ward off kidnapping, robbery and other heinous crimes from the state.
He said this at a sensitization tour to Efon Alaaye and Ijero Local government areas of the State, where he pointed out that the neglect of traditional culture and patterns of exposing criminals is one of the reasons for the rising spate of crimes in the South-West region as he charged traditional rulers to deploy their supernatural prowess to secure the lives and properties of their people.
“We want people that can enter the bush and give us native intelligence about criminal hide outs.
“People before us rose and fought invaders, we also want to rise and fight invaders. These invaders came with all forms of impunity, they kill, maim, rape and destroy people’s farm produce.”
