Hi, what are you looking for?



The Ondo State Governor, Oluwarotimi Akeredolu, has unveiled a security surveillance app during the passing out parade of Course 3 and 4 Amotekun Corps in Ondo State.

Akeredolu, in a statement made available to newsmen on Thursday, said that millions of cellphones would be converted into state security cameras with the security monitoring app, which would aid citizens in reporting bad or poor services in government, institutions, or facilities.

It read, ‘‘It will be a tech-based neighbourhood watchman/whistleblower platform where citizens can report a crime in real-time to alert all security agencies for immediate action.

‘‘The Ondo State Security Network Agency, code-named Amotekun Corps, will be armed in accordance with the law since, in the absence of such, the training would be insufficient and the lives of great patriots will be in danger and the ground-breaking platform will make sure that Ondo State’s citizens and natives actually become their brothers’ guardians.’’

Akeredolu emphasised that his administration would continue to support the operational capability of all security agencies in the state in terms of providing equipment and the welfare of their staff.

He also said the passing out ceremony served as a reminder of the need to develop a plan of action and deal with the current security situation, which he claimed had been allowed to snowball into an existential crisis throughout Nigeria.

The Governor said, “The South Western Nigeria Security Network, Amotekun Corps, as a response, is now not just the first line of defence, but the ultimate bulwark in the protection of a way of life and civilisation.

“On our part, we will continue to support the operational capacity of all security agencies in the state both in terms of equipment and the welfare of their personnel.”
