OSUN AMOTEKUN CRISIS:HUNTERS PULL OUT OVER ALLEGED FRAUD
Osogbo: Amotekun, the South Western Nigerian Regional Security Outfit, in Osun State, is currently in crisis as local hunters pulled out of the security outfit, over alleged fraud.
Nurein Hammed, the state Coordinator of Hunters Group of Nigeria, addressed newsmen in Osogbo on Thursday, stating their grievances.
Hammed said its members jointly agreed they were short-changed to the tune of N29 million by Osun Amotekun leadership during and after last year’s lockdown in the state.
While demanding for the outstanding balance, he said the group is committed to ensuring adequate security of lives and property of the state, but cannot operate under the present leadership of Amotekun in the state.
“We are unequivocally committed to working with other security agencies to protect the state against criminals.
“We swore on oath to do that but we cannot work with Amotekun to achieve those objectives.
