Amotekun: The Test..... by chosengocap: 2:14pm On Jan 17, 2020

such in their states."
The above was a common saying among Yorubas in 2015 and
also in 2019. But it was deeper than this.

Amotekun, even if it was a political gimmick on the part of the
governors, might be one move the entire South needs to reset
its political brains.
The game is on...
