Since the minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami declared the group as an illegal act, there have been serious debate on social media, with some groups applauding the decision, while others have vowed to support the security outfit.
The former minister in a new post on Twitter expressed that the South Western region and governors won’t back down in ensuring Amotekun functions effectively.
See his tweet below:
"If the Yorubas reverse their stand and turn chicken after this bold, decisive and organised move in one mass effort of solidarity based on principle, their credibility will be lost forever"- Dilibe Onyeama.
Very True. We shall NEVER go back on Amotekun.
