The Northern Youth Council of Nigeria (NYCN) has said that the newly established security outfit in the Yoruba land, Amotekun is not in any way different from the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB.
Making this claims in a statement signed by its National President, Comrade Isah Abubakar ,the group called on President Muhammadu Buhari not to allow what it called unconstitutionality to prevail.
Further claiming that the newly established security outfit was the military arm of the OPC in disguise, the group argued that the establishment was a threat to National Security
On Thursday January 9, the Western Nigeria Security Network known as Amotekun commenced operations in Yorubaland.
The body stressed that the new security outfit is in the same league with the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB.
“We appeal to President Muhammadu Buhari not to allow this unconstitutionality to prevail. The Southwest Governors must desist from backing nefarious groups such as this one.
“Amotekun is a threat to peace and national security, and an attempt to jeopardize Nigeria’s sovereignty.
“The Amotekun group is not different from Boko Haram and the IPOB Movement in their formative stages. The Nigeria Police, Nigerian Army and DSS should not take this lightly with the Governors”.
“NYCN calls on the National Security Adviser to promptly take steps that will avert the looming threat to our national security deliberately created by Governors of Southwest, OPC and others.”
