By Michael Ofulue, Osogbo

The Corps Commander of Osun Amotekun Corps, Brig. Gen. Bashir Adewinmbi has ordered the deployment of all operational and intelligence officers of the Amotekun to secure the state during the Easter festivities.

Adewinmbi also warned Amotekun operatives to stick to the Osun Amotekun Corps extant rules of engagement and guard against acts of unprofessionalism this season.

This is contained in a statement issued by Osun Amotekun Ag. Public Relations Officer, Yusuf Idowu, made available to the newsmen on Friday in Osogbo.

The Corps Commander reassured residents and visitors to the state of adequate security and safety during and beyond the period of the celebration.

According to him, the Osun Amotekun Command congratulates the people of the state, particularly the Christian faithful, as they join others in the country and beyond to mark this year’s Easter celebrations of the death, resurrection and Ascension of Jesus Christ.

“I have directed Area Commanders, Local Government Commanders and Operational Units of the Command to deploy all operational and intelligence assets at their disposal, to effectively protect their areas of responsibilities and ensure smooth celebrations during and after Easter.

“I have also warned commanders and operational operatives to ensure that personnel under them stick to the Osun Amotekun Corps extant rules of engagement and guard against unprofessional behaviour, as they will be held vicariously liable for any lapses.

“I entreat all and sundry to celebrate responsibly and peacefully as well as call on Christians to use the period to pray for the peace and progress of Osun State and Nigeria”, Adewinmbi said.

The Corps Commander urged residents to reawaken and genuinely express the true nature of Jesus Christ, which is exemplified in his love and selflessness.

Adewinmbi also called on residents to remain supportive, law-abiding and vigilant, while promptly reporting acts of crime and criminality to the nearest Amotekun command.
