Amitolu Shittu, the Field Commander of the Western Security Network Agency, has submitted his letter of resignation.
In a letter dated January 20, 2023, sent to the Secretary of the State Government, which was obtained in Osogbo on Friday, Shittu did not provide any specific justification for his resignation.
Adegboyega Oyetola’s administration appointed Shittu, who wrote in his letter that he struggled with “operational problems thrown up by the enemy within the highest hierarchy of the Corp due to military intrigues, vainglory, and egoism” while in office.
The letter partly further read, “As a man of conscience and the eternal grace of Almighty Allah, I give thanks to God for giving me the strength to carry the responsibility of the agency from day one of my appointment as pioneer Director General and the first head of Amotekun in Osun State.
“I will forever be grateful to Governor Gboyega Oyetola, the immediate past Executive Governor of Osun State, for the confidence reposed in me and the unrestricted opportunity to contribute my quota to the security development of Osun State.”
The Corps spokesperson in the state, Idowu Yusuf, confirmed Shittu’s resignation but refrained from making further comment on the development.
