The Osun state chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party has alleged that the state Governor; Gboyega Oyetola had secretly changed the title of the head of the regional security outfits (Amotekun) from director-general to field commander after the party challenged the decision in court.



It will be recalled that the opposition party dragged the governor to court over Amitolu Shittu’s appointment as the Amotekun DG, describing the title as strange to the law that established the security outfit.

A statement by the PDP State Publicity Secretary, Mr Sunday Bisi, titled: ‘Amotekun: You Can’t run away from shadows of your errors, Osun PDP tells Oyetola’, alleged that the governor secretly changed Shittu’s title from director-general to field commander as provided by the Amotekun law passed by the state House of Assembly after it had challenged the appointment in court.

The statement read in parts

“In a clandestine attempt to escape the hammer of the law, Governor Oyetola changed the nomenclature of Amitolu from the widely reported DG as contained in the press release signed by his CPS on April 24, 2020, to Field Commander of Amotekun with a purported letter of appointment post-dated to April 30, 2020, incidentally, the very day the Osun PDP served a pre-action notice on the government for the wrong appointment.”

Meanwhile, in a rebuttal to the claim, the Amotekun head; Shittu has said the allegation of the opposition party in the state is less than a trivial issue that he will be responding to because a noble man can not be "wrestling with a pig"
