Following the withdrawal of soldiers from various checkpoints across Ondo State, Governor Oluwarotimi Akeredolu has disclosed that development was due to some lingering issues between the soldiers and the Amotekun Corps.
According to Akeredolu, who stated that Amotekun was the target, maintained that the resolve of the State to sustain the security outfit remains unwavering.
The governor in a statement issued by his Commissioner for Information, Donald Ojogo, who lashed out at the People’s Democratic Party, PDP, for allegedly politicising the situation, stated that
he will not succumb to blackmail.
Newsmen had earlier reported that the peace currently being enjoyed in the State seemed to be threatened following the withdrawal of soldiers from various checkpoints across the state.
Also, PDP had alleged that the failure of Akeredolu to pay the soldiers their allowances was the reason for the withdrawal from the checkpoints.
Ojogo in the statement added that the “spurious efforts of the opposition PDP to weaponise a seeming situation of near sabotage, clearly shows how detached they are from the arena of vigilance.
“We won’t be deterred in any form. Our time-tested character and attitude toward tackling insecurity even at odd times, shall not be compromised.”
