The Governor of Ondo state, Rotimi Akeredolu has vowed that the security outfit established by the governors of the Western states, has come to stay in the land and that it would be followed to a logical conclusion.
Akeredolu, who made the statement on Wednesday during 2020 Armed Forces Remembrance Day in Akure, enjoined the people to be rest assured and that it is never a Para-Military outfit, but rather a full-fledged security outfit which is ready to complement the activities of the Police in protecting lives and property of everyone.
It would be recalled that the federal government had on Monday declared that the outfit is illegal.
“It is a legal outfit that is aimed at protecting the lives of our people which we will follow to a logical conclusion and nothing shall stop us,” he said.
The occasion was well attended by the traditional rulers and other government functionaries and the security agencies in the state.
Wives of the fallen heroes were given cheques, while some were empowered at the ceremony.
