FG Finally Declares South-West Security Outfit; Amotekun Illegal


The Federal Government has described the newly launched South-West security outfit codenamed ‘Amotekun’ as illegal and unrecognisable under the law.

The Attorney-General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami (SAN), made this known in a statement on Tuesday signed by his Special Adviser on Media and Public Relations, Dr. Umar Gwandu.

However, Chairman of Afenifere Renewal Group, Olawale Oshun has described as rubbish the statement credited to Minister of Justice and Attorney General of the Federation, Abubakar Malami that the regional security outfit, Amotekun, is illegal.
