A member of the British Royal Air Force Opeyemi Falegan has offered to train the operatives of Western Security Network otherwise called ‘Amotekun’ on security management at no cost.
Falegan, in a statement in Ado-Ekiti, Ekiti State, stressed the need to equip the operatives of the Amotekun Corps with 21st century modern security techniques and sharpen their intelligence gathering skills.
This, the Ekiti-born security experts, said would enhance their abilities to tackle all forms of criminalities before happening.
Falegan, who condemned the killings of two traditional rulers and abduction of some school children in Ekiti, said the solution to frequent attacks by bandits and kidnappers requires strengthening the local intelligence.
He called on the security agencies in the state to intensify more effort in rescuing the schoolchildren and their teachers as well bringing the perpetrators to book.
He said: ” Let me train the Amotekun corps because I still believe in the local intelligence, recognition of the local and domestic intelligence which are the local vigilantes , working with them can give tips and other information about suspicious behaviour to uncover who might be involved and for what purposes.
” This issue of kidnapping should not be seen from the political angle rather as a matter that needs urgent attention.
”Ekiti state government should involve experts in this area, in giving the government adequate advice in bringing this problem to an end by offering myself and skills without cost as a security expert.
“Using modern day technology can play a huge role in reducing insecurity in the state, Equipment like drones, ground control stations, and compact biometric search-scan systems.”
