With the official launching
of Operation Amotekun
in Ibadan, Oyo State last
Thursday, Here are 7 things you need
to know about the scheme.
1 It is the new security scheme of all
the states in the South West.
2 Each state donated 20 vehicles
each, making 120 Amotekun vehicles.
The vehicles would be dispatched to
the respective states.
3.The headquarters will be at
Ibadan, Oyo State.
4.The size of the troops would be
determined by what each of the six
states had capacity for and based on
the level of security threat.
5. Every state government will fund
the troops in its state. It is the capacity
of a state that will determine the size
of troops it needs.
6. The idea behind Operation
Amotekun is in a bid to localizing
policing. Salary of personnel will not
be below the minimum wage.
7. Their operation will be seamless.

Oyo border, the Ogun Amotekun can
cross into Oyo and vice versa
