Operatives of the Nigeria Police Force have barricaded venue of the Amotekun Rally in Lagos and other states across the South West.
ElombahNews was informed by a participant that the security operatives are shooting teargas canister to participants to disrupty the movement.
Consequently, Yorubas across the South West region have embarked on SOLIDARITY WALK to protest the Federal Government interference stopping Amotekun from taking off.
Reacting to the ban on Amotekun, Mr. Hamma Hayatu said:
“Bandits and kidnappers freely move between Kaduna,katsina, Zamfara and Niger states instead of us to know how to have our own Amotekun we are antagonizing the initiative
“The police have failed thats why people are seeking alternative community policing, must we all be killed?”
Another observer, Mr. Aloysius Ejimakor noted:
“In 12 Northern States, the Hisbah (Islamic Police) can arrest and prosecute.
“In Southwest, the OPC – whether now known as Amotekun or Forest Guards – should be free to have similar powers.
“Beware of a neighbor that has a high fence but complains that your fence is too high.”
