Transform Amotekun, Ebube Agu to state police, Afenifere tells FG, NASS

The pan Yoruba socio-cultural group, Afenifere, on Tuesday urged the federal government and the National Assembly to give the necessary legal backing for the transformation of the South-West Security Network, Amotekun, and that of the South East counterpart, Ebube Agu, into state police

Afenifere made the call in a communiqué issued by its National Publicity Secretary, Jare Ajayi, at the end of its monthly meeting held at the house of the acting leader of the group, Chief Ayo Adebanjo, in Ijebu-Ode, Ogun state.

The meeting was attended by members from the SouthWest states as well as Kwara and Kogi.

The group maintained that Amotekun and Ebube Agu must be empowered by the Federal government to end insecurity in the country.

It called on Nigerians to rise up and defend themselves against bandits, who it noted, had declared war on the country.

The group reiterated its position that restructuring remains the panacea to solve the multi various problems bedevilling the country.

“Afenifere believes that terrorism and related vices, including kidnapping, are on the increase in part because of the double standard being played by the government and security agencies on this matter. 

“And we insist that this Restructuring should be done before the next elections in the country,” the group added.
