Wole Soyinka To Amotekun Operatives: Ogun Will Strike If You Abuse Your Uniform by iampeterben(m): 7:04am On Apr 02
Nobel Laureate, Professor Wole Soyinka has sent a strong warning to the newly inaugurated Amotekun operatives in Ogun State, asking them not to engage in brutality or harassment of innocent people.

The playwright did not mince words when he said that Ogun, the god of iron, will strike any operative who abuses his uniform while discharging his duties.

Soyinka said, “Amotekun, we are watching you. If you abuse your uniform, before Ogun strikes you, we would have dealt with you.”

DAILY POST reports that the Ogun State Amotekun Corps was inaugurated Thursday by Governor Dapo Abiodun, who also decorated the Professor as the Super Marshall of the security outfit in the state.

Addressing the gathering, Soyinka expressed dissatisfaction that the police had not been able to give him a feedback on those who he claimed invaded his residence and carted away very sensitive materials, adding that he had since resorted to what he termed ‘do it yourself’.

He warned the police and other security agents not to engage in any competition with the Amotekun corps in Ogun, saying “this is not a replacement for you, you’re too jealous of your uniform.”

He urged them to welcome the new security network into their ranks and allow its operatives to complement their efforts in securing the state.

Also in his words, Abiodun warned that Amotekun should operate within the ambit of the law that established it and should not be involved in unhealthy rivalry with other security agencies.

“The inauguration of Amotekun in Ogun State is not to create unnecessary competition with other security agencies in Ogun,” Abiodun stressed.

Is that the only thing you can deduct from the article?


Prof. should forget any feedback from the compromised Nigeria security outfit. The case is dead as long as fulani is mentioned.

Prof......
Why have you suddenly lost your voice against the wantom killings in the country,
obvious nepotism, marginalization, victimization, endemic corruption, religious bigotry, widespread inflation and other social I'll of the present administration?.... embarassed

Prof I could vividly remember your outbursts and rants during GEJ administration prior to 2015 general elections....

But with all the obvious atrocities and abnormalities of the Buhari administration, Prof you've suddenly gone quite, mute and awol.... lipsrsealed

INDEED, THE GUN IS MIGHTIER THAN THE PEN..... grin

My dear Prof, how come Ogun is quiet in the face of abuse of Yewa people in their own land?

Zendinho, let's be fair. Wole Sonyinka has been speaking against Buhari's maladministration.

Do you then support that Amotekun should harass and brutalise innocent citizens?

Whether Ogun is effective or not is not the point, the point here is that they don't abuse their uniform and mission.

GBAMSOLUTELY!!

The Professor has spoken.

One of the few honest, No fears, Say-it-as-it-is, great Nigerian alive.

May the likes of Baba 70, Ken Saro-Wiwa, Gani Fawehinmi (SAN) Continue to Rest in Perfect peace.

These are the real activists to ever come outta Nigeria.
99% of the ones we have now are only after their pockets, not that they care for the poor masses.
Shameless lots.

Nice one to the Prof.
This reminds us of the movie ' A Few Good Men'
