Ogun state Amotekun corps, has asked property owners in Ogun state to always screen potential tenants amidst the fresh clampdown on cultists and other criminal elements in the state by security agencies.
Among other checks, the agency asks the property owners to ensure that potential tenants provide credible guarantors to vouch for them.
The state Amotekun commander, retired police Commissioner David Akinremi, speaking in an interview with Rockcity FM correspondent, Yemi Eniola, said most of the cultists and other criminal elements ravaging the state are residing in rented homes.
Aderemi, said landlords who fail to report tenants who are cultists, kidnappers as well as armed robbers and parents who fail to expose their children who are involved in criminal acts, will have themselves to blame.
On the recent raid on cultists across the state, Akinremi, says that Amotekun corps in conjunction with other security agencies, have made several arrests which has restored peace to Abeokuta and Sagamu where 15 people were killed within a week.
The commander, also says that Amotekun operatives have been deployed to strategic locations in Abeokuta and other parts of the state to flush out cultists who have gone underground.
Commander Akinremi, also warns that the corps will henceforth clampdown on any group of people carrying arms for the purpose of fighting for or taking over of land across the state.
According to him, the issue of land grabbing or fighting over land in the state is becoming a worrisome trend which must stop.
The Amotekun commander, also says the corps will soon recruit more personnel to boost its capacity to fight criminals.
