The Governor of Ekiti State, Dr John Kayode Fayemi has approved the appointment of Mr Akin Aregbesola as the chairman of the Governing Board of the Ekiti State Security Network Agency, otherwise known as Amotekun corps yesterday

In a related development, Fayemi also appointed Justice Cornelius Akinyayo (rtd) as chairman, Independent Amotekun Complaint Board.
