Seyi Makinde Asks For Licence To Buy Guns For Amotekun, Calls For State Police by PeaceforNigeria: 7:02pm On Jun 08
Three days after about fifteen residents of Igangan, Ibarapa North Local Government Area of Oyo state were killed, Oyo State Governor, Seyi Makinde visited the scene of the massacre.

Makinde, who was lamented the level of destruction in the community, called on the Federal Government to permit governors in the South-West to equip Amotekun Corps with sophisticated weapons, such as AK-47, to tackle rising insecurity, especially banditry and kidnapping in the geo-political zone.

SaharaReporters earlier reported that some gunmen numbering about 100, suspected to be Fulani herdsmen, invaded Igangan community, killing people and burning residents.

Makinde made the disclosure in the keynote address that he presented at the opening of the two-day 2021 Governor Seyi Makinde National Democracy Summit, with the theme: 'The Future of Democracy in Nigeria,' held at the International Conference Centre, University of Ibadan.

The governor, who said he took responsibility for the incident, however, expressed frustration with the challenges being faced by governors who are called chief security officers of their states but lack the required power.

He said: "With what happened at Igangan, the people can hold me responsible for letting them down and when I go there, I will take responsibility because those killings were really needless. Even though I continue to take responsibility for the security situation in Oyo State, we all know that, in reality, the Commissioner of Police has to wait for orders from 'above' before taking specific actions to benefit the local population.

"So, looking at the federal security agencies here in Oyo State, they have to get clearance from the Federal government. We will continue to do our best. Here in the South West, we were able to kickstart Amotekun. But even with Amotekun, people ask how the killings happened. Were they not there? But we have several limitations to what Amotekun can do and even the firearms they can carry.

"You have dane guns and you are faced with people carrying AK-47. If it is in terms of investment, if we are given the authority, I will also buy AK-47s for Amotekun, if given the licence."

"State policing is a sure cure to our national development challenges. Anyone who has been involved in security at any level will tell you that policing is local. One of the reasons why the Western Nigeria Security Network, code-named Amotekun, is recording success is because members of the corps are drawn from the locality. They know the terrain and so can gather needed intelligence. Also, they can be held accountable by the local people because they know them.

"So, when state governors become the actual chief security officers in charge of the security personnel in their states, they can quickly respond to security challenges."

Makinde noted further that "we are the Federal Republic of Nigeria, but our federalism exists in name only. Students of political history will tell you that what we have been practising is, in fact, a unitary system of government - where more powers are concentrated in the central government. Another thing that our political theorists will tell you is that by nature, a unitary system of government is better suited for small countries.

"Nigeria is not a small country. So, you can easily identify why we are experiencing developmental challenges across the board. We are trying to fit a square peg into a round hole. For true federalism to thrive, the federating units should have more powers and autonomy. The government at the centre serves as a coordinator of assets but does not wield as much power."

The summit was also graced by dignitaries including former governor of Edo State, Prof Oserheimen Osunbor; former Minister of State for Agriculture, Otunba Bamidele Dada; Director General, Nigerian Institute of International Affairs (NIIA), Prof Eghosa Osaghae; President of Apex Yoruba self-determination group, Prof Banji Akintoye; Secretary-General, Yoruba Council of Elders (YCE), Dr. Kunle Olajide; and former deputy governor of Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), Dr. Obadiah Mailafia.

You are a cow.

I don't know how some Southern leaders behave like chicken.

You are asking Buhari, a fulani with an agenda to take over your land to give you permission to buy Ak-47. Keep dreaming.

You better arm yourself. The fact that Sunday Igboho is making noise and gathering people but army has not been sent in means Foolani has surrounded Yorubas.

Igbos are their greatest headache

They are certain scenarios that don't require due process. While not follow the path the Fulani's are following in getting their own weapon?

Asking for the fulani led federal government to give you license to defend your land is akin to the antelope asking the lion for permission to defend itself against the lion.

Buhari's bias is hidden in plain sight that even the blind can see.

The South and Middlebelt Governors should give the Security Services 2 Weeks ultimatum to disarm all the killer Herdsmen and bandits failure to do so will then lead to the State Governors Arming their own Security formations and Vigilantes to Confront the Armed Killer Herdsmen and disarm them by force

The State Governors are the Chief Security Officers of their State and are bound by the Constitution to Secure their States

The State Assemblies should therefore Pass Legislation to allow the State Security agents to be Armed and by the time the Case reaches the Supreme Court the Killer Bandits would have already been disarmed

The solution is actually simple, no need to beg FG or anybody. Since the herdsmen don't get permission to carry Ak-47, then SW vigilantes too do not require any permission to carry their own AKs. They should procure the AKs the same way the killer herdsmen procure theirs; from the black market. As for the SW governors, they should just look the other way when the vigilantes unleash their fury on the killers. Problem solved.

Ths problem of the South is cowardly leaders and cowardly people. If all 17 state govs agree establish vigilante of 10,000 men and arm them with ak 47 and stand toe to toe with the Fed govt. They will back down. But with saboteurs, ass lickers in the south both leaders and citizens. Fulani will conquer the south, it's a matter of time.
Mark my words, the next president will be a fulani man and the problems will get worse.

Same way we got lotta cowards in the South who would not come out on a thousand man match on #June 12th to tell #Buhari we are tired and request Buhari resign and Nigeria enjoys Good governance. anyways, they come out or they don't come out the protest must go on and with time these cowards would drop the suit and jacket of cowardice and take to request for a better Nigeria
