- The Southwestern states of Lagos, Ogun, Oyo, Ondo, Osun and Ekiti have launched the security initiative for the region with the operative name, ‘Operation Amotekun’
- Nigerians have given kudos to the governors of the Southwest geopolitical zone for this initiative
Operation Amotekun was conceived following the spate of killings and kidnapping by some armed bandits in the Southwest.
The Operation is to checkmate all these and many other crimes.
“Following the invitation of southwest governors yesterday, the Inspector-General of Police, Mohammed Adamu, has endorsed the Operation Amotekun.”
