“As directed by His Excellency Senator Nurudeen Jackson Adeleke for hitch-free sallah celebration in the state, I have directed Area Commanders, Local Government Commanders, and Operational Units of the command to deploy all operational and intelligence assets at their disposal following the directive of His Excellency Senator Nurudeen Jackson Adeleke the Osun State Governor, to effectively protect their areas of responsibilities and ensure smooth celebrations during and after Eid-el-Adha festivities.

“There is no call for alarm as the operatives of the corps were on red alert in all the local government in the state for the hitch-free Sallah celebration.

“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 acts of unprofessionalism 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 Muslims Ummah to use the period to pray for the peace and progress of Osun State and Nigeria at large,” Adewinmbi said.

While assuring of adequate security and safety during and beyond the period of the celebration, Adewinmbi called on residents to remain supportive, law-abiding, and vigilant, while promptly reporting acts of crime and criminality to the nearest Amotekun Command and other security agencies.
