Insecurity: Olota donates Hilux van, motorcycle to Amotekun Corps


The Olota of Ota, Prof. Adeyemi Obalanlege,  (Lanlege Ekun II) has donated Hilux van and operational motorcycle to Amotekun Corps as one of the measures to contain security breaches and making Awori Kingdom devoid of insecurity.

Addressing the combined team of Amotekun and Nigerian Police Force at the palace, the Chairman, Olota Security Committee and Seriki of Ota, High Chief Taofeeq Olanrewaju Bashorun made it known that the magnanimity of Olota did not just start today as he had before now, gifted operational vehicles to the Nigerian Navy in Ota, among several other communal interventions.

He said Olota, being a royal father that is proactive, did not want to wait until an ugly incident happen in his town or any other Awori town before he swings into action, rather, he prepares ahead for unforseen circumstances, hence the need for the hilux vehicle and the motorcycle being given to Amotekun.

In his remarks before the presentation, His Majesty said he was taken aback by the ugly terrorist attack on innocent worshippers in Owo, describing it as the ‘most unfortunate’.

He said as a royal father, “who understands that government can not do it all,” he decided to give the vehicle and motorcycle to Amotekun Corps, being a local security outfit that is closest to the people at the grassroots.

He advised them to make judicious use of the vehicle to reduce insecurity in Ogun State, most especially, Ado-Odo/Ota Local Government.

Receiving the vehicles on behalf of Amotekun state commandant, David Ajibola Akinremi, Deputy State Commandant, Olukayode Aina, said his joy knew no bound as he had looked forward to receiving such great news in time past.

He, however, showered praises on Olota for looking in the direction of Amotekun, that mobility has reduced their efficiency before now, while assuring that the vehicles would aid their performance.

Distinguished members of Olota-in-Council in attendance were; Ajana of Ijana, Ota, HRH Oba Clement Olusegun Akinyemi, Onikotun of Otun, Ota, HRH Oba AbdulAkeem Odunaro, Onikosi of Osi, Ota, HRH Oba Sikiru Anibire, Balogun of Ota, High Chief Isiaq Idowu Balogun,  Bashorun, Oluwo of Ota, High Chief Deinde Oyedele, Oluwo Itoki, Ota, and High Chief Ganiu Adeleke Dada.
