Oyo State Amotekun Recruitment: What You Need To Know Before Applying

The Oyo State state has opened the recruitment portal for the applicants who are interested in joining the Amotekun security arm of the state. Amotekun, translated to Leopard in English, was flagged off by the six Governors of the South Western States of Nigeria. It was established on January 9, 2020.

Amotekun was birthed owing to the incessant crimes being performed on the soil of the 6 States. Kidnapping, rape, robbery banditry and other crimes are becoming the order of the day, and the criminals seem to be having a field day as no or little arrest is being made by the police to curb this menace.

This insecurity across the South western region of Nigeria instigated the Governors of the 6 States involved to call for an emergency summit on June 2019 where the Operation Amotekun was concluded on.

Ekiti, Osun and Lagos did part of their recruitments into the operation early this year. Oyo State has also announced the commencement of the recruitment exercise into Operation Amotekun in their state.

Those that are interested in joining the Amotekun are asked to do so on the registration portal here.

Please note that the form is free and can be accessed on their website even with your mobile phone. So there is no need of visiting a cyber café. 

Having a security related experience gives you more chances of being selected.

Wishing interested applicants best of luck.
