Federal Government Endorses Amotekun On These Terms

The Federal Government has reached an agreement with the governors of the region over the establishment of the indigenous security group within the zone in a meeting between the Vice President Prof. Yemi Osinbajo, the Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami, the South West Governors, and the Inspector General of Police, Mohammed Adamu.

VP Osinbajo’s spokesman, Laolu Akande, twitted the approval. He wrote:
The meeting was very fruitful and unanimous resolutions were made on the way forward. Having regard to the need for all hands to be on deck in addressing the security concerns across the country, it was agreed that the structure of Amotekun should also align with the Community Policing strategy of the Federal Government.
It was also agreed that necessary legal instruments will be put in place by each of the States to give legal backing to the initiative and address all issues concerning the regulation of the security structure.
This comes days after the Attorney-General of the Federation declared the vigilante group illegal, thereby drawing an uproar from indigenes of the zones.
