Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu explains why Lagos state does not have Amotekun (video)
There is news about Lagos state Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu.
Sanwo-Olu has explained why Lagos state does not have Amotekun like other South-West states.
Sanwo-Olu made the explanation in an interview on Channels Television as he revealed apart from community policing, the LNSC also engages in border patrol noting that Lagos state has over 7,000 neighborhood watch personnel who are doing exactly the same thing Amotekun operatives are doing.
He said, “So it’s just a name change in the case of Lagos. I appreciate what my colleague governors are doing, and they also appreciate the peculiar nature of Lagos.
“I have got over 7,000 neighborhood watch personnel in Lagos, who are doing exactly the same thing that we have Amotekun doing.
“They are there at the border post giving us daily monitoring in their localities and feeding it back to the central. They are the ones feeding us with information. But they cannot carry arms and prosecute people.
“The borders that I have in Lagos are outside of the Atlantic Ocean is Ogun state.”
