Seyi makinde is set to access the activities of the Yoruba security agencies the Amotekun, after a news came out that they are being tough on the citizens.
The Amotekun were created to solve the issue of insecurity in the western region of the country and there have to be a case of check and balances to avoid a situation whereby those forces become an uncontrollable force likes the issakaba boys.
Seyi makinde made a statement through his social media platform addressing the issue.
Following the recent events in Tapa, Ibarapa North Local Government Area, it becomes imperative that I once again reassure the good people of Oyo State that our administration is doing everything in it’s power to address security issues in our state.
One of the strategies we are using to check insecurity in the state is the recently introduced Western Nigeria Security Network (Amotekun). I am fully aware of the alleged highhandedness by some members of the corps. We are investigating these issues to address them promptly.
The welfare and security of the good people of Oyo State remain our top priority. We will not sit back and watch any harassment or intimidation of members of the public or our security officers.
Therefore, I urge the good people of Oyo State to please remain calm and allow members of the corps to perform their legally authorised duties for our people’s well-being. Let me assure you that if any corps members are abusing their office, they will be dealt with accordingly.
If seyi makinde deals with it, it will surely curb and reduce the way security officers like Police and Soldiers treat their citizens.
