Amotekun will use supernatural powers – Ekiti commandant says

Ekiti State Corps Commandant of Amotekun, Brigadier-General Joe Komolafe (Rtd.) said that the agency will deploy ancient, local and modern security techniques to ward off kidnapping, robbery and other heinous crimes from the state.

Speaking at Efon Alaaye during a sensitisation tour to Ekiti West, Komolafe averred 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.

He, therefore, advised traditional rulers to deploy their supernatural prowess to secure the lives and properties of their people.

The commandant stated that the security outfit would protect the Southwest from invaders who had constantly constituted threats to the region.

Komolafe insisted that they will employ ancient Yoruba tactics of securing territories and fishing out criminals from their hideouts.

On the composition of the security outfit, Komolafe said the first phase of the recruitment was to establish an intelligence-based outfit and later accommodate Amotekun ambassadors who would serve as informants of the agency.

According to him, there will be no age limit to those that would make up the ambassadorial category.

“We want people that can enter the bush and give us native intelligence about criminal hideouts.

“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.”
