It will be recalled that the Special Adviser to Governor Seyi Makinde on Security Matters, CP Fatai Owoseni(rtd) had said while featuring on a live television programme on Friday that the Personnels of Operation Amotekun will bear arms.

But speaking on BOTTOMLINE, a Weekly political programme on IBR 92.5fm Ibadan, monitored by InsideOyo.com, Prince Adeleke Adedoyin said it is only the conventional Security Operatives in the Operation that will bear arms.

“It is high time we began to see issue of Security beyond arms and vehicles”.

According to him, it is the various state in the region that will determine the pay and numerical strenght of members of the initiative that will operate in their state.

He assured members of the public that the security initiative will not be a burden to them as there will be adequate checks on their activities.
