Ondo State Governor Oluwarotimi Akeredolu has vowed not to subsume Amotekun Corps under the Nigerian Police or under the guise of community policing.
According to the chairman of the South West Governors’ Forum, Akeredolu, the grassroot security outfit was formed by enabling legislation, hence its function is to complement the traditional security agencies.

While appearing on Channels TV’s breakfast programme, the governor spoke Wednesday’s Sunrise Daily.

Akeredolu noted that Nigeria Police’s partnership with Amotekun Corps was to collaborate in protecting the citizens and their properties.

“We have a President who has a listening ear, if IG is not ready to listen to us, we will go and meet the President; we will continue to make the case, we will not collapse Amotekun into community policing.”

Nevertheless, he observed that the Inspector General of Police would call for a dialogue on the need for cooperation between the two security outfits, rather than the collapse of the law-backed Amotekun into a community policing policy.
