Amotekun Denies Letter Declaring Legislative Aspirant Winner Of APC Primaries In Osun

South West security agency code-named Operation Amotekun has distanced itself from a viral letter declaring an All Progressives Congress (APC) aspirant as the winner of a legislative primary election in Osun State.

Olla reports that there were controversies over a letter allegedly written by the Amotekun corps.

The content of the letter claimed the state-owned security agency had declared one of the aspirants in the last APC House of Assembly Primary Election in Irewole/Isokan State Constituency as the winner.

Reacting, however, to the claims which have generated some reactions, the Osun State Amotekun Command in a statement signed by its spokesman, Yusuf Idowu Abass, said the letter is fake and the agency is not connected with it.

The statement reads:

“The attention of Osun Amotekun Corps has been drawn to a letter spreading around on social media where libelous allegations were made against Osun Amotekun Corps declaring one of the aspirants in the last APC House of Assembly Primary Election in Irewole/Isokan State Constituency as the winner.

“We wish to inform the general public that Osun Amotekun Corps is not connected with such and the letter on the social media is fake and far from the truth.

I want to urge the general public to disregard the propagandist spreading fake letters.”

The statement, which stressed that no party can lay claim to the security outfit as it is non-partisan and belongs to the entire citizen of the State, added that Osun Amotekun Corps is an establishment of the law.

Amotekun maintained that the controversial publication was part of an orchestrated campaign of calumny aimed at damaging the reputation of Osun Amotekun Corps and bringing it into public infamy, scandal, scorn, and contempt.

It added: “It has been noted that whenever criminal elements want to perpetuate their evil and their satanic plans, that is when they publish fake news.

Our resolve to stamp out the criminals in the State is not negotiable.

“The purported letter was not signed and it is without the Amotekun logo.

Also, none of our officers is authorized for such without taking permission from the State headquarters.

Meanwhile, the letter is false, the letter is aimed at denting the unbiased activities of Amotekun.

“We, however, urge the promoters of the said letter to henceforth stop disseminating false information to the public,” it concluded.
