Amotekun to defend Yorubaland, restore peace, YWC insists


Yoruba World Congress (YWC), led by Senator Banjo Akintoye has said Amotekun was created to defend all parts of Yorubaland to ensure peace and freedom need for productive lives

Akintoye said this at the first general assembly, themed: ‘Networking The Yoruba Nation For Prosperity And Development’, in Lagos, yesterday. He explained that in the face of near collapse of security in Nigeria and relentless importation of insecurity into Yorubaland, Amotekun became a necessity. 


Director Contacts and Mobilisation of the group, Comrade Victor Taiwo, said: “The pleasant waves blowing in Yorubaland today are unprecedented, as there has never been a time in our history that we have had this beautiful development of the Yorubas rising in unison to sing a tune of accord in their will to collectively drive home their general cause.

“Before now, our Yoruba nation was in a state of terrible danger of susceptibility to being summarily overrun by enemy forces, as we were literally in a state of absolute disarray, like a horde of motherless chicks without direction and focus on a rudderless ship.

“If the enemy forces had given us massive attack at the time, we would have been submerged without defence into a shameful perdition. We would have been rendered hors de combat.”
