DAILY POST reports that the management of The Polytechnic Ibadan has enlisted the help of the Western Nigeria Security Network (WNSN), better known as Amotekun.
The service of Amotekun became necessary due to recent security breaches at the institution, according to the DAILY POST on Thursday.
Armed robbery, confrontations between cult groups, and other criminal activity have occurred on occasion at the prison in recent weeks.
Governors of the southwest region formed Amotekun to combat banditry, kidnapping, and other criminal acts in the area.
According to information obtained by our correspondent on Thursday, the institution has enlisted the help of Amotekun officials to combat the threat.
Amotekun personnel have been stationed at strategic areas throughout the campus, including the institution’s gates, according to our source.
When our correspondent visited the college, Amotekun officers were observed mounting the institution’s sewage gate and other critical spots on the campus.
Alhaji Soladoye Adewole, the institution’s Public Relations Officer, verified the news to DAILY POST on Thursday.
He explained that the decision was made to protect the institution.
“There isn’t anything going on.”
“We’re all trying to protect ourselves.”
“It’s a common occurrence,” he explained.
