Amotekun Not Regional Outfit - IGP, SouthWest Governors Embrace Community Police by EsomahJD: 6:19am On Feb 14
The Inspector-General of Police, Mohammed Adamu, yesterday insisted that Amotekun could not be a regional security outfit, stressing that each state is entitled to have its own security platform as backed by the law.

Adamu added that community policing would be of great advantage in securing the lives and property of the people and assuring that the Nigeria Police Force would give it full support.

The IG said these shortly after meeting with South-West governors at a stakeholders’ summit on community policing at the Lagos House, Alausa, Ikeja.

Adamu, while addressing the press after the meeting, said the Federal Government was not in opposition to any security outfit that would be in tandem with community policing.

He, however, added that the issue of regional policing should be discarded.

“Amotekun is not a regional security outfit. As it is, every state has been having its security outfit. It is agreed that the structure be in conformity with community policing. It should be infused into it.

The public is the police and the police is the public. It (Amotekun) must be backed by law for it to be effective. The structure will be in tandem with community policing,” the police boss said

Earlier, Governor of Ondo State and Chairman, South-West Governors’ Forum, Rotimi Akeredolu, said the governors had resolved to enforce community policing in its entirety.

He added that despite having Amotekun as a security outfit, it should not be seen as a regional policing.

“We want all of us to know that we said we are having Amotekun, it is not a regional police, it is state-based. We have agreed that we can use Amotekun in our states,” Akeredolu said.

Meanwhile, the bill seeking to establish the Ekiti State Security Network Agency,” also known as South-West Security Outfit, code-named Amotekun, yesterday passed first and second readings in the state House of Assembly and was committed to the Committee on Security.

In his remarks before the commencement of the debate, the Speaker, Mr. Funminiyi Afuye, said that what is going on in the country gives a lot of concern and states “that we must protect our people from criminals. We must warehouse our people from kidnappers through the passage of this bill.

“The President visited Borno State yesterday for condolence visit over the killings of dozens of people by bandits, we don’t want such condolence visit to our state. We must take the passage of the bill very seriously.”

Also, the bill seeking to give legal backing to the South-West Security Network, code-named Operations Amotekun, yesterday passed second reading at the Oyo State House of Assembly.

The Speaker of the House, Adebo Ogundoyin, said members of the outfit should be recruited from the same localities where they would work, adding that vigilantes, hunters and guards should be integrated into Amotekun.

The bill was forwarded to the Committee on Security and Strategy.

However, Ogun State House of Assembly yesterday acknowledged the receipt of a correspondence from the State Governor, Dapo Abiodun, conveying the proposed bill on the state’s new security outfit, Amotekun Corps.

The Assembly reiterated its assurance to harness the views of the citizenry and other relevant stakeholders in the legislative process to ensure speedy passage of the bill into law.

I said this all along and now they have been disbanded.

Amotekun is just a distraction and was duly treated as noise by government.

Amotekun stays.Some criminals are jittery because of amotekun.
All Yorubas either Muslims , Christians or any other religion home and abroad support amotekun.
It will protect all non indigenes in the SW including Malami,Adamu and the Fulanis provided they are not criminals Only the guilty are afraid.Amotekun will be the best security outfit in the world.

Sure, Amotekun cannot be regional as we don't have any regional government in place. That was the mistake SW governors made ab initio and it could have backfired.

Every SW state will have its own Amotekun with community police infused into it. And states' Amotekun are free to cooperate and and collaborate from time to time.

Amotekun has come to stay. And it has birthed community policing which everybody is now latching on to.

Piiggiiiddiiioottts are just saddened that they can't have their own 'Amotekun'.... grin Too bad! grin

North have Hisbah in addition to community policing.

SW have Amotekun in addition to community policing.

Piiggiiidiiioootts have NOTHING in addition to community policing... grin

Piiggiiddiioootts want a scenario where Amotekun and security agencies will be hostile to one other. Do you think we are dumb like you
