You have no right to declare ‘Amotekun’ illegal, Adebanjo tells FG


A leader of Yoruba socio-political organisation, Afenifere, Ayo Adebanjo has said the federal government has no right to declare a south-west security outfit, Amotekun illegal.

The Attorney-General of the Federation (AGF), Abubakar Malami had on Tuesday declared Amotekun illegal, saying security remains the exclusive preserve of the federal government.

Speaking with TheCable, Adebanjo, who stated that the AGF has no right to make such pronouncement pointed out that the federal government ought to have gone to the court if it had anything against the outfit.

The elder statesman wondered why the one in the south is considered illegal while similar civilian organisations are operating in the north.

Adebanjo, who said he is not surprised by the comment made by the AGF added that any dictatorial tendency of the federal government is welcomed.

“I have predicted it, so they are only confirming all that I have said about Buhari’s dictatorial tendency.

“The judiciary is established to adjudicate between persons and between governments. I have said it before that this is not a government of the people; it is the military government of the north by Buhari. It is a dictatorship per se,” he added.
