“We give you 24 hours to speak out on Amotekun,” group tells Tinubu

An association based in Lagos known ‘Save Lagos Group,’ has given the national leader of the All Progressives Congress, Bola Tinubu, 24 hours to make his position known on the newly established South-Western security network known as ‘Operation Amotekun’.

Tinubu has remained silent on Amotekun since its launch by South-West governors last week.

Attorney-General of the Federation, Abubakar Malami (SAN), had on Tuesday declared the outfit as illegal while the South-West governors have remained unfazed.

In a statement on Friday, Convener of the group, Adeniyi Sulaiman, said they were giving Tinubu 24 hours to speak up, Punch reports.

Sulaiman asked him to be courageous regardless of his rumoured Presidential ambition.

The activist rubbished threats by Northern groups like Miyetti Allah, which stated that supporting Amotekun may cost the South-West the Presidency in 2023.

He commended several personalities like Nobel Laureate, Prof Wole Soyinka; Afenifere chieftain, Chief Ayo Debanjo; legal practitioner, Femi Falana, SAN; Chief Olu Falae, Otunba Gani Adams and several others for speaking up for people of the region.
