The management of The Polytechnic Ibadan has engaged the service of Western Nigeria Security Network (WNSN) codenamed Amotekun to combat the worsening insecurity.
According to reports, the service of Amotekun became necessary due to the recent security breaches in the institution.
The institution has in the last few weeks witnessed security breaches occasional by armed robbery, clashes among cult groups and other criminal activities.
Amotekun was established by governors of southwest region to tackle banditry, kidnapping and other criminal activities in the region.
It was learnt that the Amotekun personnel have been stationed at strategic locations within the campus, including gates to the institution.
The officials were even seen mounting the Sewage gate of the institution and other strategic locations on the campus.
Public Relations Officer of the institution, Alhaji Soladoye Adewole has confirmed the development.
