Insecurity: Abiodun Names Wole Soyinka Amotekun Super Marshall

Insecurity: Abiodun Names Wole Soyinka Amotekun Super Marshall (Updated: 1 year ago)


The Governor of Ogun State, Dapo Abiodun has named playwright and Nobel Laureate, Prof Wole Soyinka as the Super Marshall of the Ogun State Security Network codenamed Operation Amotekun.

Abiodun on Thursday decorated Soyinka with some emblems of the Amotekun Corps during the inauguration of the security outfit in the state.

Also, Governor Abiodun commissioned scores of patrol vans and motorcycles to aid the operations of the Amotekun Corps.

While decorating the Nobel laureate, the governor said, “This outfit is very close to his (Soyinka’s) heart and issues of security, particularly in the South-West.

“On that note, I have a singular honour and privilege to present prof some of the Amotekun insignia being the Super Marshall of Amotekun in Ogun State.”

The herdsmen crisis in parts of the Ogun State has been disturbingly worsened in recent times with many residents of Yewaland displaced to the Benin Republic.

Agrarian communities in Ogun have also suffered unnumbered killings by Fulani herders who have also been accused of rape, kidnapping, amongst other unprintable crimes.

The security challenges confronting the state seemed overwhelming for the men of the Nigeria Police Force, thus, necessitating the support of a law-backed security outfit like the Amotekun Corps.

six Governors of the South-West had inaugurated the Western Nigeria Security Network also known as Operation Amotekun last years to tackle peculiar security threats in the region.
