Assuring the people of Ondo State he said that his administration has commenced an intense exercise of flushing out criminal elements and further urged the council Chairmen to begin engaging local hunters in to synergize with Amotekun towards achieving the task of tackling insecurity.


Akeredolu, in giving his assurance said at least, two operational vehicles will be provided for the Amotekun Corps in each of 18 local government areas across the state. 


Gov Akeredolu speaking further, laid emphasis on Amotekun corps, describing the security outfit as a key to the effectively securing lives and property of Ondo people and also appealed to the council Chairmen to ensure the exercise is carried out in harmony with Amotekun corps.  He also said the Ondo state government will meet with the Chairmen monthly.
