According to reports, the operatives of Amotekun will be known as corps and will bear licensed firearms while working.

This was made known by the Ekiti State Attorney General and Commissioner for Justice, Olawale Fapohunda, while speaking on the outcome of a meeting of the Attorney Generals from the South-West zone held in Ibadan, the Oyo State capital, on Friday.

Fapohunda revealed that each of the Commissioners for Justice in the zone agreed to insert a clause which empowers the Amotekun Corps to carry only licensed firearms in the bill for an act backing up the initiative.

He, however, said arms bearing by Amotekun personnel would be subject to the approval of the Inspector-General of Police, Adamu Mohammed.
