9 Important Things You Need To Know About Operation Amotekun

It is a form of security outfit to guide and protect the lives of the innocent in the South West region.


1. Amotekun is the Yoruba word for Leopard. The Amotekun logo highlights the image of an angry leopard in its full flight. This represents ‘Zero tolerance to crime’.

Only God knows why the northerners are afraid of AMOTEKUN, if they don't have hidden agenda they need not to be afraid.

Amotekun would go a long way in reducing crime at the communal level so it is a very welcome idea. We now await the legal framework that would be produced by the different AG of the participating states.

There's a big reason. The initiator and those criticize it reason beyond immediate provision of security in south west. This outfit will definitely put northerners on the check in their disposition to national issues. I will not say more than that.

I have studied and analyse Amotekun saga. It's God himself that gives south west governors this initiative. It's is more than protect south west against Fulani herdsmen. Akintola is the Judas of Yoruba land on this issue.
