The process of recruiting personnel into the Oyo State Security Agency code-named Amotekun was concluded at the weekend, Mouthpiece NGR has learnt.
The agency recruited about 2,000 personnel, including support officials, who will be trained before official launching.
The Chairman of the agency’s board, Gen. Ajibola Toogun (rtd), said the outfit will be launched before the end of the year.
Speaking with Mouthpiece NGR yesterday, Toogun said final screening of candidates, which marked the end of the recruitment process, was completed on Saturday.
He added that training will begin as soon as the agency overcomes some challenges.
When asked if the list of successful candidates has been made public, he said the list will only be released when the agency is about to commence training, which he said will happen soon.
Toogun acknowledged that expectation about the outfit is high among citizens, noting that the agency will do a thorough job to give Amotekun a sound footing in the state.
He said the agency is liaising with its counterparts in the other five states in the Southwest, adding that inter-state cooperation will boost its success story.
