Leaders of Southwest region have been attacked by a Second Republic lawmaker, Junaid Mohammed, over the creation of operation Amotekun.

READ HIS WORDS BELOW:

“It was a grave mistake for the Presidency to allow the governors to set up the outfit if it is true that the federal government gave them any form of permission to launch”.

“How can governors who have not been able to pay the new minimum wage, be able to set up an army and armed the militias?”

“To me, it is not in Nigeria’s interest to allow Amotekun at this time in its history. As far as I am concerned the fact that they went ahead to flout such an entity at this moment in the history of Nigeria shows clearly that there is something fundamentally wrong with the polity.”

“I know the key players in the Southwest very well. And part of their calculation is that if Amotekun fails, they would at least use it to force the federal government to make more concessions to the Yoruba.”

“But I want the masterminds of this grave illegality to be ready to face the consequences of their dastard action.”

Mohammed disagreed that Amotekun, Hisbah police, and Civilian JTF were, all the same, pointing out that while Amotekun is armed by the governors of the Southwest, Civilian JTF are mere hunters and like Hisbah do not carry arms
