OPC drums support for Amotekun, asks South-East Governors to support Nnamdi Kanu’s ESN

The Oodua Peoples Congress (OPC), in a statement have shown its support for the western security outfit known as Amotekun. The group said with the level of commitment and tenacity the security outfit have exhibited in Oyo and Osun state respectively, it will in no time rid the region of bandits and other criminal elements such as kidnappers and herdmen.

The statement was disclosed by the OPC Publicity Secretary, Barrister Yinka Oguntimilehin.

Yinka commended the Amotekun leaders in the 2 states, saying that their vision will pay off in the long run. He said that the security challenges faced by the states will soon become a thing of the past.

In his statement, he urged Governors from the South-East to put its weight behind the Eastern Security Network (ESN), a security outfit created by the IPOB leader, Nnamdi Kanu.


His statement reads, “We need to commend the leaders of the group for their commitment to the southwest. It is obvious that the southwest security outfits have all it takes to flush out the bad elements in the region. Last year Amotekun corps intercepted 14 Almajarai hidden in vehicle container in Osun.”

“The Almajarai, according to the reports hide in the container of a moving vehicle at Ikire, Irewole local government area, Osun State, when the corps stopped them at a checkpoint, forced the driver of the vehicle to open the container only to see 14 Almajarai hiding in the container.”

“Now that the southwest is doing everything that is necessary to rid the region of criminal elements, including killer herdsmen, and kidnappers, the southeast remains their next target and destination for destruction, so it is advisable for the Governors of the south East to enforce a better approach and modalities for securing the region using the Eastern Security Network (ESN)”.
