Real reasons Governor Dapo Abiodun approved Amotekun officially

It has been gathered that the Ogun state government has approved the creation of the Southwest security outfit code-named “Operation Amotekun”.

The approval was given at the State Executive Council meeting which held at the Executive Chamber of the Governor’s office, Oke Mosan secretariat, Abeokuta on Tuesday February 11th, after an extensive deliberation that lasted close 10 hours and presided over by the state governor, Governor Dapo Abiodun.

Addressing journalists at the end of the Executive Council meeting, the commissioner for Justice and Attorney General of the State, Adegbolahan Adeniran, said the presentation of the bill before the state council followed the earlier approval by the Attorney Generals and Commissioner of Justice of the six Southwest states.

Adeniran assured that the State Amotekun Corp will be headed by a state Commandant, adding that the bill also allows for collaborative efforts between the six Southwest states should the need arise.


He expressed optimism that the bill will get speedy attention from the state lawmakers so that the Governor can also give the required assent in no long time.

“We presented the bill for the creation of the Ogun State Security Network Agency or what many call the Amotekun Corp Bill of 2020.

“Today, the Executive Council of Ogun State met and adopted a draft as amended of a bill for a law to establish the Ogun State Security Network Agency. This agency is the agency that will comprise of the Amotekun Corp and this bill will be transmitted to the house of assembly before the end of this week,” he said

The Amotekun Security outfit had already been launched by the Governors of the Southwestern states. However, it became very clear that there was a need for a legal backing for that operations.
