The Ogun State government has approved the proposal for the creation of the Ogun State Security Network Agency, tagged the ‘Amotekun Bill’.
The approval was given at the State Executive Council meeting presided over by Governor Dapo Abiodun.
Addressing reporters at the end of the Executive Council meeting, the Commissioner for Justice and Attorney General of the State, Adegbolahan Adeniran, said the presentation of the bill before the state council followed the earlier approval by the Attorney Generals and Commissioners of Justice of the six southwest states.
Adeniran assured that the ‘Amotekun Corp’ will be headed by a State Commandant, adding that the bill will also allow for collaborative efforts between the six southwest states.
He, however, expressed optimism that the bill will get speedy attention from the state lawmakers so that the governor can also give the required assent in no long time
