Legal fireworks may soon begin on issue of Amotekun as illegal..
YOU NEWS gathered that the South-West governors would in the next few days meet and might resort to legal action against the AGF’s pronouncement.
A renown historian, Prof Banji Akintoye, in an interview with one of our correspondents, said the Yoruba would in court challenge the declaration of Amotekun as illegal by the Federal Government.
Governor Rotimi Akeredolu (SAN) said “We have not met. When we meet, we will react appropriately, but one thing is clear, laws are not made in the office of the AGF. He is only meant to interpret the law,”
When contacted, the Ogun State Government described the AGF’s position as “a mere statement from another government official.”
The Chief Press Secretary to the state governor, Kunle Somorin, said the AGF might be taken to court.
He said, “It is a mere statement by another government official. Other political leaders across the South-West have spoken in favour of Amotekun.
Other regions are planning to emulate South-West governors on the ideas and ideals of Amotekun.
There’s no going back. We can challenge it in the law court. The AGF must know the truth that Amotekun is a reality, nothing is changing it. There’s no going back on Amotekun
