Amotekun Commander Storms Ekiti Assembly in Juju Regalia, Lawmakers Reacts

Amotekun Commander

In efforts to show that the Amotekun initiative of the southwestern region is necessary, a leader of the outfit in Ekiti state was dressed in combat regalia when he visited the state house of assembly.

The leader was there to attend a public hearing and to deliver his submission on the security initiative.

Recall that the Amotekun bill had earlier been passed into law by the Ekiti Assembly.

Wothappen.com reported that the delay by southeast governors and the IGP to arrive at the venue of the security summit nearly marred the event.

The event which was slated for 9 am was attended by the leadership of Ohanaeze Ndigbo, traditional rulers from the five states of the zone, religious leaders, captains of industry and other stakeholders from the zone.

They had all arrived on time with the venue, Base 2 event centre filled to capacity and the police band was on hand entertaining.

But as at 1 pm, the governors were nowhere to be seen as the VIPs patiently waited.

At this stage, most of the dignitaries ran out of patience and the Anglican Archbishop of Enugu, Emmanuel Chukwuma announced to the audience: “We are not here for music entertainment but for security issues. We have been here for hours waiting for these people and they are no where to be seen. This is how they toy with issues concerning Ndigbo. Why should they keep us waiting.”

The report said that as if that was the whistle the VIPs were waiting for, the president-general of Ohanaeze Ndigbo, Nnia Nwodo, stood up and left the venue and was followed by many of the traditional rulers.

Despite the pleading of the chairman of the Enugu state traditional rulers council, Igwe Lawrence Agubuzu, the VIPS ignored him and left.

The governors and the IGP arrived about an hour later.
