‘Amotekun should be independent’


By Emmanuel Oladesu, Deputy Editor

Afenifere, the pan Yoruba socio-political group, yesterday urged the Federal Government not to tinker with the structure of the security outfit, Operation Amotekun, which was initiated by Southwest states.

The group said: “We restate our rejection of the gaffe by the Federal Government that the Yoruba states security initiative, Amotekun, will function under the IG of police.

“We fully back our governors that being a product of law by federating units, the outfit should be independent and not be muzzled under the failure of single police that necessitated it in the first place.

“Seeking to take Amotekun over negates the untruth by the Federal Government that it has commenced restructuring.”

Afenifere, led by Pa Reuben Fasoranti, also enjoined the Constitution Review Committee headed by Deputy Senate President Ovie Omo-Agege to consider the report of the 2014 National Conference set up by former President Goodluck Jonathan.
