The Osun State Command of the Western Nigeria Security Network, code-named: ‘Amotekun’, has confessed to using ‘Africa science’ to rescue abducted victims without any payment to abductors.
The Commandant of the security outfit in the State, Amitolu Shittu, who made this revelation on Saturday, explained that the security agency has been able to rescue kidnapped victims from bandits after prayer consultation with the ‘Africa science.’
Speaking further on how his group has been rescuing victims without ransom, Shittu mentioned that bandits are also in awe of Amotekun’s spiritual powers entrenched in the Yoruba tradition. He boasted further that bandits have often confessed to their victims that they were released because Amotekun spiritual powers are superior to theirs hence the release to avoid being overwhelmed.
Shittu also attributed the success of Amotekun to God’s intervention. He cited how they were able to rescue kidnapped victims along Ila road in Ekiti State using the same method. He maintained that the Osun Command of the security agency has since then improved in their operations and ensured that victims are rescued without paying ransoms.
Shittu also advised that the Western Nigeria Security Network should be free from politics, saying, “I want to advise the South-West governors not to allow any element of politics to override what will come to outlive them”.
