Dr. Junaid Mohammed has accused the Southwest governors of planning to form a separate nation through the Southwest Security Outfit known as ‘Operation Amotekun’.
Mohammed insisted that Operation Amotekun is nothing but a tribal militia for the region’s agenda of transforming into another country.
According to Vanguard, the second republic Senator stated that those behind the formation of the armed group were against the interest of Nigeria and should be made to face the full weight of the law.
He declared further that no governors have the authority whatsoever to raise such an illegal army.
Recall that Nnamdi Kanu had hailed the Southwest governors for the boldness to set up the security outfit. Many other groups from the Southern part of Nigeria also endorsed the move.
Meanwhile, people from the Southwest and others have been reacting to the statement credited to Mohammed, describing it as insensitive to plight of the citizens who daily face security problems within the region.
