Eniola Akinkuotu, Abuja

The Miyetti Allah Kautal Hore herdsmen group has said the support for the South-West security outfit, Amotekun, shows how primitive Yoruba people are in politics.

The National Secretary of the group, Alhassan Saleh, said this during Channels Television’s ‘Sunrise Daily’ programme on Monday.

Saleh said it was unfortunate that both the Yoruba intelligentsia and political class could support such an initiative which seeks to curb the activities of herdsmen in the region.

When asked if he indeed told The PUNCH last week that support for Amotekun could cost the South-West the Presidency in 2023, Saleh admitted saying so but said it was not blackmail.

He said, “It is not blackmail. Unfortunately, with very strong apology to my South-West friends, despite the education of the Yoruba people, they still remain the most primitive in terms of politics. They are not tolerant to opposition and if you allow them to have an ethnic army, definitely there will be fear from Nigerians.”

Saleh recalled that in Lagos during the 2019 governorship elections, many persons in Igbo dominated areas were not allowed to vote because of the level of intolerance.

He said if Amotekun is allowed to see the light of day, worse may happen.

“We know what happened in Lagos during the last elections. The Igbo were denied voting and the oba even threatened to throw them into the lagoon. So, if you now have a Yoruba ethnic militia, what do you think will happen?” he asked.

The Miyetti Allah Kautal Hore secretary was, however, cautioned by the Channels anchor, Chamberlain Usoh, who asked him to be civil in his speech.

Saleh, who adamantly insisted that Amotekun was an ethnic militia, wondered if persons of other tribes would be recruited into Amotekun.

He called on the Federal Government not to allow the security outfit to begin operation.

When asked why Sharia Police, Hisbah, and the Civilian Joint Task Force in North-East were allowed to operate in the North-East, Saleh said they were backed by law and were working in concert with the police.

“Hisbah is legal because it is backed by law. That is clearly different from what you have now as Amotekun,” he said.

Unimaginable!!!

These cattle rearing clowns shouldn't take their freedom in the west too far, it will just be the end of the road for them. Una hear me?

Are Yoruba's suddenly angry about this type of statement from Miyetti Allah? I mean they caused all this by joining forces with the Fulani's to the detriment of the whole South in 2015.
Also for those of you think these people are not speaking the mind of the Buhari's administration, then you are probably sleeping.

One more thing: Tinubu has refused to comment on the issue because he is in a tight spot... If he supports it, he fears the backlash from the North and he can as well kiss his presidential bid goodbye......while if he doesn't support it, he risks the wrath of the entire South West, so he just wants to stay on the fence and let it play out itself.

To know a good leader is in tough times like this.... Tinubu has shown he isn't..... He is just all in it for himself.

*modified*
There is absolutely no reason for Tinubu not to comment on this.... Most prominent Yoruba's have commented.....Soyinka etc, even Atiku wey the thing no even concern has also commented and even supported the scheme.
Make no mistake, if this Amotekun thing was seen as a thing between Igbos and Yorubas or Yorubas and Jonathan, Tinubu would have commented since.... Because it will be providing red meat to his base and online e-warriors so as to sow discord, create more divisiveness between the two tribes and help him politically.... Is always about what's good for BAT, but unfortunately, most of the useful tools in his hand don't see it that way.

Yep, but that coming together must have that understanding of establishing Biafra and Oduduwa governments that will protect the “SOUTH”.


That happens, Africa rises immediately and frees itself from TERRORIST that tie bedsheets on their head instead of developing like the real Muslims in Dubai

This is a representative of the views of Fulani on Tinubu and Lagos. They hated Tinubu and Yoruba with passion. They only tolerated Tinubu because the needed him to bring in PMB and ensure he gets second term.
In the build up to 2023 other regions should use their tongue to count their tongues.

Just imagine! These killers are really jittery.Now not only Yoruba people should form the regional security outfit anymore, but all regions affected by the hausa-fulani deliberate failure of governance(spanning a greater part of our national life with its attendants complications esp.the widespread worsening insecurity) should do likewise.

Leave the north-east and west for them to form their caliphate.Lets now see who are now primitive.Useless people. undecided

Saleh recalled that in Lagos during the 2019 governorship elections, many persons in Igbo dominated areas were not allowed to vote because of the level of intolerance.

Taah! Please don't involve Igbos in your master-slave issue. We just dey our own dey observe. In 2015 the two of you called us names, 5%, 97% and cheered our soldiers who massacred unarmed protesters and labelled them terrorists.

While we support Amotekun as it seeks to protect lives and properties of people in the SW, we don't want you to mention us in your discussions, we have suffered enough in your both hands.
Today we are remembering the massacre of our people in Asaba by Fulani Lt Col Murtala Mohammed and his Yoruba accomplice Capt Ibrahim 'garagara' Taiwo.
Allow us to reflect in peace.

We know what happened in Lagos during the last elections. The Igbo were denied voting and the Oba even threatened to throw them into the lagoon. So, if you now have a Yoruba ethnic militia, what do you think will happen?” he asked.

The same Fulanis who celebrated the Oba who threatened us with drowning in the Lagoon and cheered Yoruba thugs in some parts of Lagos for preventing Igbos from voting in 2019 elections now wants to hoodwink us into seeing Yorubas in bad light, it won't work, we decide for ourselves how we want to view anyone sad
