Aare Ona Kakanfo of Yoruba land, Gani Adams, has called on governors in Southwest states, to recruit men and women in the region for security purpose amidst the growing insecurity pervading the country.
Adam made this call in a statement he released wherein he lamented the insecurity rocking the country and went on to proffer solution to tackle the menace.
The Yoruba generalissimo raised concern about an alleged invasion of forests Osun State by suspected terrorists urging governors in Southwest states to commence a recruitment drive in the area of security.
Part of his word, Abeokuta in Ogun State, however, I implore all the governors in the South West to recruit local security service structure in their various local governments. At least, 150 people in each local government. This local security architecture would be given stipend as salaries as their job is to assist and complement the efforts of operation Amotekun that had been existing in five out of the six states in the region. However, it must be said also that in case the governors need my help or any kind of assistance or that of South West Security Stakeholders’ Group (SSSG) in strengthening our region’s security, I am ready to offer the assistance. Nothing guarantees safety in any country or region other than the synergy and cooperation among all the stakeholders.
