The Chairman of the Oyo State Security Network Agency (Amotekun), Gen. Kunle Togun (rtd) on Saturday confirmed that his agency has smatched the network of a group of unauthorised tailors who have been mass-producing fake Amotekun uniforms for sale in the state.
He spoke on FRESH 105.9 fm Political Circuit in Ibadan
Col. Togun said the erring tailors have been arrested and handed over to the police at Yemetu Police Station in Ibadan for prosecution.
Togun said, “We heard that these people were sewing and selling the fake Amotekun uniform to some people particularly at Lagelu area of Ibadan. We are presently in the area to uncover the truth.
“Our fear is that if the uniforms get to the wrong hands and they use them to commit crimes, people will believe it is the handiwork of real Amotekun personnel.
Togun, who recalled how he fired an erring Amotekun officer who killed 21-year-old Tosin Thomas in the Mokola area in the state to set a good example, said, “We are really afraid of this development because bad news spread quickly than good news.”
