The Vigilante Group of Nigeria (VGN) has decorated a frontline politician and chairmanship aspirant of All Progressive Congress (APC) in Abeokuta North local government, Mr. Tajudeen Ishola as its Patron in Ogun State.

Ishola equally bagged the TEMPLAR award as Knight in a religious military setting. 

The award ceremony which took place at the Wuraola Event Centre, Asero, Abeokuta had in attendance former Speaker, Ogun State House of Assembly, Rt. Hon. Titi Oseni-Gomez, Ogun State Commissioner of Police, Chairman, Abeokuta South local government, Hon. Ayodeji Shomide among others. 
While decorating Mr. Ishola, the Assistant Commander General, Vigilante Group of Nigeria, Mr. Enitan Emmanuel said the choice of Ishola as Patron and awarding him TEMPLAR award was as a result of his commitment to community service and religious upliftment. 

Speaking shortly after his decoration as Patron, Mr. Tajudeen Ishola dedicated the award to humanity, pledging his support to promote community policing in the state. 

TJ as fondly called by politcal associates said security of lives and property cannot be left alone in the hands of government, calling on members of the public to support security agencies for a crime free society.

"To the glory of Almighty Allah, I bless this day and dedicate this Award to humanity. This award will further spur me to do more in my service to the community. 

"Elevation comes with so much responsibilities and this is another wake up call for me to work harder for the uplifting of my people and I  promise to do better in sustaining the already existing symbiotic relationship with the security agents in the state. 

"I want to use this opportunity to call on other well-to-do individuals in the state to team up with the vigilante to provide security for our immediate communities and render the necessary support to them as voluntary organization."
