Yorubas are always pacesetters!

Yoga this nor be copy copy matter. Every body must open their eyes and protect themselves. Fulani herdsmen destroy peoples farm and sometimes kill the farmers and not all these incidents are reported. Now that everyone is coming up with local security forces, the herdsmen will begin to think twice before they misbehave and the cover ups by their police and army brothers in power will be exposed.

It is actually not the first regional security outfit. It is the first to gain statutory power, but OPC was the first non-statutory regional security group.

Agbekoya ko Igbekoya ni, we are not talking about a revolt by a bunch of stone throwing peasants which was easily dispersed by the local police in just one hour grin, which regional security outfit in the history of Nigeria was more popular than Bakassi boys till date? Bakassi boys was so popular that a movie was even made about it, and it gained popularity in no time in all home made videos in Nigeria... Even the so called OPC can never touch the Bakassi boys in effectively combating crime, OPC was just an ethnic militia band of misfits that killed innocent Northerners during the famous Yoruba-Hausa clashes in Lagos.

Operation Amaefula", a regional effort to secure our people and their farmland is highly recommended at this juncture.

AGREED!!!


*The question remains, Should the South East not have South East Forest Guards Network otherwise known as "Amaefula" Operation?*

THE SE SHOULD LAUNCH AMAEFULA IMMEDIATELY.

THE NW HAS SEEN THE WISDOM IN AMOTEKUN AND ARE EMULATING IT RIGHT AWAY. GOOD LUCK.

AMOTEKUN DOESN'T NEED TO KILL A CHICKEN BUT THE ALOOFNESS OF A TIGER IS WARNING THE LION THAT THE TIGER IS HUNTING SEPARATELY.

THIS IS GOOD ENOUGH AS A NUCLEUS FOR AUTOMOUS STATE POLICE AND WILL LATER MAKE THE CONSTITUTION AMENDMENT EASIER.

AMOTEKUN:
(A Clarion Call for South-East to Adopt "Enugu Forest Guards" model for Regional Security).

By:
Henry Nnanna Okeke, Esq. 10/01/2020.

*The question is "Should the South East not have South East Forest Guards Network or "Amaefula" Operation?*

Security and Welfare of the people remains the primary purpose of Government as enshrined in section 14(2) of the 1999 Constitution. Primarily, this means that security and welfare of the people is at the center of the entire concept of Government.

*Amotekun Operation *

In a bid to unanimously combat Insecurity in the region, the South West States of Nigeria officially launched a security formation code named "Operation Amotekun" on January 9th, 2020.

Amotekun Operation as a child of necessity is a regional effort birthed to assist the conventional police force in crime control and prevention.
Legally, Amotekun Operation is a larger scale compliance to section 20 of the Administration of Criminal Justice Act 2015. According to section 20 ACJA, "A private person may arrest a suspect in Nigeria who in his presence commits an offence, or whom he reasonably suspects of having committed an offence for which the police is entitled to arrest without a warrant."

Therefore, the Western Nigeria Security Network (WNSN) otherwise know as “Amotekun” is a lawful innovation by the Governors Rotimi Akeredolu (Ondo) Seyi Makinde (Oyo), Gboyega Oyetola (Osun), Babajide Sanwo-Olu (Lagos) , Kayode Fayemi (Ekiti) and Dapo Abiodun (Ogun).

*Enugu Forest Guards*

Enugu State Government under the able leadership of Governor Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi have demonstrated absolute commitment towards security, safety and welfare of the people. Evidently, the Governor of Enugu State understands the primary purpose of government when he boldly introduced and adequately funded the Enugu State Forest Guards and other security approaches that has brought tremendous security confidence to Enugu State residents and her visitors.

The Forest Guards initiative of Governor Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi administration is the first of it kind in Nigeria. Through a transparent recruitment process by the DSS, adequate funding by the Governor, operational formation and synergy with the Police, Air Force and other security agencies, the Enugu State Forest Guards initiative is today a success story worthy of emulation.

* South East State's Collaboration*

Although the Governors of the South East have met severally at the Enugu Government House to chat a road map for security of the region, there is now need for "walking the talk".

The peculiar forestation of the South East States ordinarily calls for regional security efforts. A careful study of the region and her security issues have revealed that the forests have routes to and fro each State. For instance, local hunters in the olden days could move from Awgu forest in Enugu State to Okigwe forest in Imo State within hours. Oji River forest in Enugu State has a route to and fro Awka forest in Anambra state. From Amechi Idodo - Nkalagu Forest is connecting Ebonyi and Enugu State. The proximity of our forests and the mode of operations of criminal elements in the region obviously requires a holistic adoption of the Enugu State Forest Guards model.

Call it South East Forest Guards or " Operation Amaefula", a regional effort to secure our people and their farmland is highly recommended at this juncture. This is more so when we consider the fact that criminal elements in the South West Forests will certainly relocate to safer forests as Amotekun Operation kicks off in essence.

Therefore, this is a clarion call for the people and government of South East States of Abia, Anambra, Ebonyi, and Imo State to urgently adopt and expand the Governor Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi's already successful Forest Guards initiative for maximum security of the South East region. This is imperative in view of the likelihood of metamorphosis of our current federal police to state/regional police. The South West is deliberately prepared for the restructuring of our national security apparatus hence the birth of Western Nigeria Security Network (WNSN) otherwise known as "Amotekun Operation".
