Ekiti State Governor, Kayode Fayemi, says the South-West geopolitical zone has no plans to secede from Nigeria, adding that the newly launched South-West Security Network, code-named “Amotekun” was to tackle armed robbery, kidnapping, banditry and illegal destruction of lives and property.

The governor said Amotekun wasn’t formed so that the South-West region can secede from Nigeria as it remains an integral part of the country.

Fayemi said this on Monday when he hosted a pan-Yoruba development interest group, the Oodua Progressive Union, OPU, Worldwide who were led to his office by the Aare Ona Kakanfo of Yorubaland, Chief Gani Adams.

Represented by the Deputy Governor, Otunba Bisi Egbeyemi, the governor said: “Amotekun is not political, it was established for the protection of our people and stem the tide of armed robbery, kidnapping, illegal destruction of lives and property.

“This is the first time that the region is united on the need to raise a security platform to complement the existing security agencies to protect the lives and property of our people, which is our constitutional duty.

“I also want to say that the South-West is not seceding from Nigeria. The South-West zone remains part of Nigeria and it will remain committed to a united and indivisible Nigerian federation.”
