Makinde said it has been a long journey to get to this point from July 2019 when the first meeting was held by all six southwest governors to set up a regional security outfit.
Makinde further stated that the Amotekun Corps will collaborate with federal security agencies to secure our state.
Members of the corps will be drafted to all the 351 wards in Oyo state. As I have stated before they will be answerable to me and so, I will be responsible for their actions, he added.
