A leader of the new security outfit, Amotekun, who is also believed to be a top Amotekun Commander on Monday, stormed the Ekiti State House of Assembly dressed in combat, juju-designed uniform.
Eye9ja reports that the Amotekun commander was at the State Assembly to attend a public hearing on the security outfit when he surprised the lawmakers in the state House with his juju-designed uniform.
On his appearance, the Amotekun leader gave his submission on the security initiative.
This comes in barely 24 hours after Eye9ja reported of a viral video showing the Amotekun officers training with the use of live, burning inferno.
Recall that the Ekiti Assembly had earlier passed the Amotekun bill transmitted by Governor Kayode Fayemi into law.
This online news platform recalls that South-west Governors had last Thursday met with the Inspector General of Police (IGP) Mohammed Adamu, over the establishment of Amotekun.
The IGP and the governors all reached an agreement during the stakeholders’ summit on community policing
Commissioners of Police, Commissioner for Justice from the six states in the region, Royal fathers, Community Development Committees (CDCs), other security agencies and stakeholders were at the Summit held in the Lagos State Government House, Alausa, Ikeja.
Speaking to newsmen after the meeting, Governor Rotimi Akeredolu stated that Amotekun is not a regional but community initiative.
“It is clear that community policing, which the Nigeria police is anchoring is one that will benefit all of us from the ward up to the state level,” he said.
Governor Akeredolu further added as thus; “We have made things clear to everybody and we want all of us to know now that when we said we are having Amotekun, it is not that we are creating a regional police, Amotekun is not a regional police.”
“Amotekun is state-based because we don’t have regions in the country anyway. We only have states and all of us have agreed that when you have laws in your respective states backing Amotekun or any security outfit, then you can go ahead for as long as it is within the legal bound.”
