The Ogun State House of Assembly passed a resolution on Thursday, urging the State Government to enhance the effectiveness of the State Security Network Agency, popularly known as the Amotekun Corps, in safeguarding the lives and properties of residents.

The resolution called for the appointment of a new State Commander, preferably not below the rank of a Major, to oversee the agency's operations following the demise of its former Commander.

The Assembly emphasised the importance of recruiting more capable personnel and providing them with necessary resources such as ammunition, vehicles, and communication gadgets to address the escalating security challenges, particularly kidnappings and armed robberies, in various parts of the state.

During the plenary session, Assembly members highlighted the inadequacies faced by the Amotekun Corps, including insufficient funding and manpower.

They emphasised the urgent need to equip the agency with modern tools and vehicles to enhance its operational efficiency and effectiveness in combating crime.


The resolution was unanimously supported by the House through a voice vote, demonstrating a collective commitment to strengthening the security apparatus in Ogun State.
