Governor Dapo Abiodun of Ogun State has spoken on the reports making rounds that he plans to pull out of Operation Amotekun.
Recall that six states in the South West commissioned the Operation Amotekun due to insecurity challenges in the region.
The creation of Amotekun has attracted various reactions from Nigerians since it was launched on January 9th, 2019.
The Ogun State Governor and his Osun State counterpart were absent at the inauguration of the security outfit in Ibadan which stirred reactions that the duo plan to withdraw from the operation.
Abiodun while speaking with journalists in Sagamu on Sunday denied reports of planning to pull out from operation Amotekun.
He said, “All the six western governors jointly subscribed to the security outfit.”
“We did not pull out as I was represented at the inauguration of the operation by my deputy.”
He further stated that the Ogun State government has donated 20 operational vehicles to the initiative.
