The Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC), Oyo State Command,  has promised to give maximum support to the state Security Network Agency, code-named: ‘Amotekun Corps’, to enhance its operations.


The promise was contained in a statement issued in Ibadan on Thursday by the command’s Public Relations Officer, Oluwole Olusegun.

Olusegun quoted the state Commandant, Iskilu Akinsanya, to have made the pledge, when the Chairman of Amotekun, Gen. Ajibola Togun (rtd), and his members visited the command on Thursday.

Akinsanya lauded Gov. Seyi Makinde for supporting the security agencies and releasing take-off grant to Amotekun to beef up security in the state.

He urged the people to assist the security agencies in the state with useful information that could help them to fight crime and criminality.

Earlier, Togun said their visit was to acquaint themselves with the commandant and solicit more support from the command.

He opined that collaborating with NSCDC would be of immense benefit to the new outfit.

He specifically sought for more partnership in the area of training and intelligence sharing, given that NSCDC covers the 33 Local government and 35 Local Council Development Areas.

He said, “Security is everybody’s business and it is better to partner with an agency that has integrity and appreciates other sister-agencies as ‘partners in progress’.”
