Ekiti State Governor Mr. Kayode Fayemi has revealed that the joint Southwest security outfit, Amotekun, will kick start on January 9th in all the six states in our zone.
Naija News learnt that Fayemi, who made this known in his New Year message, said the outfit would complement the efforts of the regular security agencies.
“Ekiti is very active in this initiative which will go a long way in securing the people and protecting the state. The fact remains, however, that criminality cannot be totally eradicated even as we are working meticulously at reducing it to the barest minimum in Ekiti State, and the evidence is there for all to see and acknowledge that we are making steady progress. Since we are not an Island, we are working with neigbouring states to strengthen our security architecture,” he said.
Mr Fayemi also urged community leaders and groups not to allow themselves to be used to cause unnecessary tension that could trigger crisis in the state./*/
