As the insecurity increased across the country especially in South West Nigeria, the people in the country have advised the state governors in the states to strengthen Amotekun to curb insecurities.
This advice followed the none mention of solutions to curb insecurity in the country in national broadcast delivered by the president, Mohammadu Buhari in his speech yesterday as he didn’t made any matching order to stop the crises.
Recalled Western Nigeria Security Network (WNSN) codenamed Operation Amotekun (Leopard), is a security outfit based in all the six states of the South Western, Nigeria, responsible for curbing insecurity in the region. It was founded on 9 January 2020 in Ibadan, Oyo State, Nigeria as the first regional security outfit initiated by a geopolitical zone in Nigeria.
The discussants and people calling on Fresh FM in Ibadan on Friday while discussing the present insecurity in the Oyo State and South West states at large gave the advice as better measure to curb the insecurity bedevilling the states.
For some days ago, youths have thronged out to expressed their displeasure over impunity and excesses of police unit, called Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS) but it seems the protests have been hijacked by the hoodlums as they were seen unleashing terror on members of the public.
This has led to destructions of lives and properties especially killings of policemen and burning of police stations. Also, these hoodlums have been seen damaging buildings and looting valuable things.
Could this truly be a solution to the present insecurity in the South West States in the country? Your comments please?
