A middle aged man, identified as Adeyemi Agboola has been arrested for defrauding unsuspecting applicants into the recruitment for the Western Nigeria Security Network, otherwise known as Amotekun.

The Commandant of the Amotekun operations, Colonel Olayanju Olayinka (Rtd) said the culprit would face the law for his action as he has been handed over to the appropriate prosecuting agency/while he appealed to members of the public to be wary of individuals that would always want to take advantage of others in the society because the victims were educationally deficient.
