Amotekun embarks on joint border patrol in S’west ahead of Yuletide

The Western Nigeria Security Network, WNSN, also known as Amotekun Corps, has launched a joint border patrol within the Southwest over the weekend in an effort to thwart crimes on roads ahead of the festive period.

The Amotekun Corps Commander of Ondo State, Akogun Adetunji Adeleye, who also serves as the chairman of all corps commanders, said the border patrol exercise was conducted in coordination with his counterpart in Osun State, Brigadier General Aderounbi (rtd), Akogun Adeleye.

Adeleye disclosed that the exercise will be tagged “Operation Gba’le Gba’ko.”

The operation was the second edition of the Corps’ strategy to combat criminals targeting travellers and traders during the holiday season, Adeleye, who led the border patrol squad, emphasized.

Adeleye disclosed that no fewer than 340 victims of robbery and kidnapping operations were rescued and 80 stolen vehicles were recovered in 2021.

He also promised that all would be done within security procedures to provide a safe route for travelers during this year’s festivities.

“Last year when the Ondo State and the Osun State inter border patrol commenced, we recorded very huge success.

“We were able to dismantle a number of kidnappers’ cells, we were able to recover illegal arms and weapons, we were able to release kidnap victims, we were able to arrest kidnap suspects and armed robbers.”

On his part, the Amotekun Commander of Osun State, said “I just want to advise the community to cooperate with us and make sure that this time around, we record another huge success to bring improved security to lives and property of people in the Southwest region.”
