Corps Commander of Ekiti State Security Network, also known as Amotekun Corps, Brig. Gen Joe Komolafe, says the training for successful candidates for the outfit would begin on Sunday.
He noted that the security network recorded 325 successful candidates shortlisted out of the 3,261 applicants invited for the just concluded screening.
According to him, the successful applicants would participate in the three-week training beginning on Sunday at the Ekiti State University, Ifaki-Ekiti campus.
The Amotekun commander said, “With the recruitment of the corps, the spate of insecurity will be reduced to the barest minimum. Criminal-minded elements should steer clear of Ekiti State or meet their Waterloo”.
The state commander urged the successful candidates to resume to camp within the stipulated period, warning that “there would be no further registration after the cut-off date of the midnight Wednesday, 30 September, 2020.
“Only successful candidates whose name appears on the Amotekun website are to come to the training camp with two white T-shirts, two white shorts, two pairs of white canvas shoes, hand sanitizers, face masks, toiletries and other items,” he said.
Komolafe said the exercise had been transparent with personnel from the Amotekun agency and certified security experts involved in the process.
