Aare Ona Kankanfo of Yorubaland, Chief Gani Adams, has stated that those who oppose the South-West security outfit ‘Amotekun’ are criminals and agents of destruction.
Reacting to the criticisms that greeted the establishment of ‘Amotekum’, emanating from some sections of the country, Chief Adams noted that if the South-West is safe, the entire country is safe, hence the need to establish Amotekum.
He made this known, in Ado Ekiti, the capital of Ekiti State, during a courtesy visit to Kayode Fayemi, the executive governor of the state.
In his words: “It is necessary for our governors to (let us) have our own security network, Amotekun. Life is precious. You don’t politicise the issue of security, if the South-West is safe, the entire Nigeria is safe.
“We don’t need to continue throwing missiles at ourselves in the media. Anybody who stands as an antagonist to Amotekun, I will perceive that person in two forms. One, he has some agenda to destroy our zone; or two, he is an agent of criminals.
“Definitely, the agreement between the Federal Government and the South-West governors is a welcome development. It is for the progress of the country.”
