The Commandant of the Ekiti State Security Network code-named Amotekun, Brig.-Gen. Joe Komolafe (rtd), has said the corps will use supernatural and modern security techniques to combat banditry, kidnapping and other crimes.
He spoke yesterday at Efon Alaaye during a sensitisation tour of Ekiti West, Efon Alaaye and Ijero local governments.
The commandant said the security outfit would use ancient Yoruba tactics of securing territories and fishing out criminals from their hideout.
He said neglect of local and ancient patterns of exposing criminals was one of the factors responsible for the rising case of crimes.
Komolafe urged monarchs to deploy supernatural prowess to secure people’s lives and belongings.
Describing Amotekun as a force of liberation, he said the security outfit would protect Southwest people from invaders, who had constituted threat to the region.
