Amotekun must not become another SARS –Soyinka

Nobel Laureate, Prof. Wole Soyinka, has said the South-West Security Network Agency, also known as Amotekun, must not morph into another Special Anti-Robbery Squad of the Nigeria Police Force.

He said the men of the Amotekun Corps must be trained on the issue of ethics so that they don’t become more brutal and ruthless than the officers of the defunct police unit.

Ondo and Oyo States have launched the security outfit endorsed by the governments of the six South-West states last year.

However, of late, there have been allegations of recklessness and extrajudicial killings against the security outfit, especially in Oyo State.

Speaking on Saturday, Soyinka said the minds of the Amotekun operatives must be trained to understand the essence of their job.

The Nobel Laureate spoke while featuring on an Arise TV programme monitored by The PUNCH.
