Vigilante Service of Ogun State set to launch their website soon. This was publicized by the PRO of the group on Thursday. The group which had their grassroots history thus:
Interestingly, some people of like minds from the three geo-political zones in Ogun State who have been providing security with their native background in hunting couple with high level of exposure came together to reason out the way forward to curb crimes and criminality and to establish a grassroots security platform to reduce the above mentioned security challenge to a barest minimum . And this was designed to complement other security agencies in the state, to alleviate the people suffering on the part of the encountered security menace.
These in totality led to the formation of the Vigilante Group of Nigeria (VGN) which was then proclaimed to be a proscribed security organization by the Federal Government of Nigeria.
Thereafter, the administration of Senator Ibikunle Amosun CON, FCA in the year 2011 felt that the security of its people and their property in Ogun State is paramount to his government. But, because of the proscription of the name Vigilante Group of Nigeira (VGN) by the Federal Government of Nigeria, the group was not acceptable to him not until the group Exco members put their heads together and recoined the name to be what we are having today as Vigilante Service of Ogun State(VSO).
