Aare Afe Babalola, a senior advocate of Nigeria, on Sunday, January 19, said that any move by the federal government to destroy the southwest security initiative, Amotekun, will not work.
Fayemi who was one of the arrowheads and visible governors in support of the initiative said his colleagues in the southwest will respond appropriately to the Buhari's government decision.
Fayemi who is among the south west governors who championed the initiative assured that personnel of the agency will not bear arms like operatives of the Nigeria Police or Military.
As anxiety spreads over the establishment of Amotekun, the south-west's security outfit, the Arewa Consultative Forum (ACF) has said the Attorney-General of the Federation (AGF), Abubakar Malami, has a task before him.
As ‘Amotekun’, south-west’s regional security force commenced operation on shaky note on Thursday, January 9, Governor Kayode Fayemi has explained the rationale behind its establishment.
The institution's decision followed the adoption of the report of the management committee set-up to review the report of an external audit firm, DEVTAGE Ltd, that recommended retrenchment.
