Ogun Amotekun Commander, Akinremi, Is Dead


The Ogun State Commander of the Amotekun Corps, David Akinremi, has died.

Akinremi, a retired Commissioner of Police, was said to have died on Monday evening.

The late Amotekun commander was appointed in 2021 by Governor Dapo Abiodun as the pioneer Commander of the newly established Amotekun Corps.

Our correspondent gathered that Akinremi had been nursing an undisclosed ailment for quite some time until he breathed his last on Monday.

Confirming his death, the Commander of the Ogun State Community, Social Orientation and Safety Corps, also known as So-Safe Corps, Soji Ganzallo, described Akinremi’s death as a rude shock.

Ganzallo said this in a statement issued from the office of the Director of Information and Public Relations of the Corps, Assistant Commander Moruf Yusuf.

He said that the death of CP Akinremi (retd.) is indeed a very big loss to Ogun State.

The statement read, “Uncle Dave, as I used to call him, was a very open, blunt, wonderful, large-hearted, intelligent, strategic, adaptable, adept and adventurous person.

“He was a man of integrity, who had passion for the security job, with his love for Ogun State and Nigeria at large.”

Ganzallo noted that until the commander’s last breath, he believed Ogun State would stand out among states in the country, security and safety-wise.
