"We Dare FG To Arrest Us" – Afenifere Replies Miyetti Allah Over Operation Amotekun 3

A Yoruba socio-cultural organization, Afenifere has dared the federal government to arrest Southwest leaders over their support for Operation Amotekun.

Afenifere was reacting to a call by the National President of Miyetti Allah Kautal Hore, Bello Abdullahi Bodejo, who asked the FG to arrest Yoruba leaders who are backing Operation Amotekun, a southwest security outfit.

KanyiDaily had reported that during an interview with The Sun, Bodejo sought the arrest of Yoruba leaders promoting Amotekun, which he claimed the aim of setting up was to ban Fulani herdsmen from southwest.

However, early Saturday morning, the spokesperson of the Yoruba socio-cultural group, Yinka Odumakin, replied Bodejo, suggesting they’re waiting for the arrest. Odunakin said:

“If herdsmen are the criminals in the Southwest, then, we have to drive them away; if they are the troublers of the Southwest, if they are the ones poaching and raping our women, if they are the ones who killed Fasoranti’s daughter, then there is the need to drive them out. They will be driven out either by Amotekun or by something else because we need peace in our land; we have not gone to their land to kill them or to kidnap them.

“As for his call on the federal government to arrest the leaders of Amotekun, we dare them to come and do it. The last time they tested the will of Yoruba people was over the June 12 presidential election, and Nigeria was at war. It was that battle that drove the military away, so we are waiting for them with all pleasures to come and arrest them.”

Meanwhile, the Attorney General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami (SAN) has declared Amotekun illegal.

Malami said south-west governors lacked the right to float a security outfit.
