Osun Amotekun Commander resigns over ‘operational challenges’
The Field Commander of Osun State chapter of the Amotekun Corps, Mr. Amitolu Shittu, has resigned over what he termed “operational challenges”.
This was contained in a resignation letter addressed to the Secretary to the State Government in Osogbo, the state capital, dated January 20, 2023.
Mr. Shittu, in the letter, stated that he struggled with “operational challenges thrown up by the enemy within the top hierarchy of the Corp due to military intrigues, vainglory, and egoism” while in office.
He said: “As a man of conscience and the eternal grace of Almighty Allah, I give thanks to God for giving me the strength to carry the responsibility of the agency from day one of my appointment as pioneer Director General and the first head of Amotekun in Osun State.
“I will forever be grateful to Governor Gboyega Oyetola, the immediate past Executive Governor of Osun State, for the confidence reposed in me and the unrestricted opportunity to contribute my quota to the security development of Osun State.”
Shittu was appointed by the administration of the immediate past of Osun State, Mr. Adegboyega Oyetola.
His resignation came barely a month after the incumbent Governor, Senator Ademola Adeleke, assumed office. Read more.
