Oyo Governor, Seyi Makinde, says his administration is investigating the alleged highhandedness of the Amotekun corps.
He assured me that each one issue is going to be addressed squarely within the interest of the safety and residents of the state.
Makinde gave the reassurance on Friday while reacting to the clash in Tapa town in the Ibarapa North government Area.
Three people were feared dead during a clash between youths and therefore the Amotekun corps.
Makinde said the govt won’t allow any harassment or intimidation of members of the general public or security agents.
“I am fully conscious of the alleged highhandedness by some members of the corps. We are investigating these issues to deal with them promptly.”
The governor urged everyone to stay calm and permit members of the corps to perform their legally authorized duties.
“If any corps members are abusing their office, they’re going to be addressed accordingly,” Makinde said.
