The Baale of Ekotedo in Ibadan the Oyo state capital, Elder (Dr) Taiye Ayorinde has described the emergence of Amotekun security network recently launched by the governors of the South Western States of the nation as a welcome development, saying that it has come to stay.
He said the development was justifiable owing to the objectives behind the action, adding that Hisbah and others forms of security outfits also exist in the North for security purpose.
Chief Ayorinde while describing the statements of the Attorney General of the Federation (AGF) Mr Abubakar Mallami as uncalled for said a Nigerian of his status would not have descended low to describe such noble effort as illegal.
He said If there had been free education in nigeria back then there would not have been any form of hoodlums In the country.
Chief Ayorinde said the statement is a huge joke that does not hold water, adding that Malami has no right to declare any undermining utterances on the issue.
Chief Ayorinde, former chairman Oyo State Monitoring Commodity and Prising said the emergence of Amotekun should enjoy the support of House of Assembly in all the six south west states by enacting relevant laws to back the security network.
“The federal government is afraid of its shadow “how can you stop a moving train with out the driver stopping it” .
“The Federal government alone can’t handle the security of the nation that is why we have the security summit which was organised by the DAWN commission”.
“Amotekun is a leopard, an animal that does not afraid anything, so, this Amotekun is a replica of the real Amotekun.
“The Attorney General should retract his uncomplemetary statements, western Nigeria is not a nation any body can make uncomplimentary statement and do away with it.
