The Ogun State government has stopped the sale of recruitment forms to individuals interested in joining the Southwest Security Network codenamed Amotekun.
The Coordinator of the security outfit in the state, Taofeek Olawale, made this known to newsmen in Abeokuta, the state capital.
Concise News reports that the security outfit was recently launched in Ibadan, the Oyo State capital, by the six South-West governors to tackle kidnapping, banditry and other crimes in the region.
Olawale warned prospective applicants to beware of fraudulent and unscrupulous people who may want to take advantage of the situation.
He called for the cooperation of prospective applicants noting that a new date for the sale of the form will be announced soon.
According to him, the sale of the form was earlier scheduled to commence on Monday but was halted because of the need to sort out modalities and logistics for a hitch-free registration of applicants in the state.
“The process is still ongoing. We believe in the rule of law and its supremacy. There is currently a synergy between the legislative and judiciary. We are trying to put everything on order. The Federal Government, particularly the Inspector General of Police will still be reached out,” he said.
