Governor Seyi Makinde announced this in Ibadan on Wednesday at the end of a meeting held with representatives of the communities and security stakeholders.
The Commissioner of Police in the state, Ngozi Onadeko, was also present at the meeting.
“The Amotekun operatives will launch missions to rid forests in the areas of criminals.
“The operatives will be presenting daily reports of their activities to the governor in the short run and periodic reports in the long run.
“The government will continue to enforce the Oyo State Open Rearing and Grazing Regulation Law, 2019, as the law also regulates the activities of herdsmen in Oyo State.
“The authorities have directed the Amotekun Corps to continue collaborating with other security operatives and local vigilance groups in enforcing this law.
“You will recall that in the security meeting of southwest governors and other stakeholders two days ago, it was agreed that open grazing be banned in the entire southwest zone,’’ the governor said.
