Ekohotblog, September 15, 2020..
A man identified as Kareem Isiaka Taiwo was on Monday arrested by security agents in Ibadan for posing as an officer of Western Nigeria Security Network (WNSN), also known as Amotekun.
Ekohotblog noted that Taiwo tried to fraudulently swindle people of their money in the guise of being a recruitment officer.
Our reporter learned that the event that resulted in his arrest was when he pasted a notice at the Adamasingba Stadium venue of the State’s recruitment screening center with his name and phone number on Sunday.
He added that interested candidate should apply witching by contacting him.
Following investigations, Taiwo was then arrested at 11:45am on Monday and handed over to security agents for prosecution.
Chairman, Oyo State Security Network Agency (Amotekun Corps), General Kunle Toogun (rtd.) confirmed the arrest.
He said the general public should be wary of fraudsters in their quest to become members of the corps.
