The Oyo State governor, Engr Seyi Makinde has disclosed that the new security outfit in the south west, Amotekun will also operate in Oyo State.
Governor Makinde stated this in his address during the launch of the scheme which was held at the state secretariat, Agodi Ibadan.
He stated it is not an agenda to undermine the integrity of the nation but to strengthen the bond among the state in the southwest for the purpose of providing security for their people.
“Just as some of us are unapologetic Yoruba indigenes, we are very proud citizens of Nigeria and we will do everything to protect the integrity of our people.”
He said the security of the people is important because there can not be any meaningful economic growth without proper and adequate security for all and so the need for the creation of the outfit.
