Nobel laureate, Wole Soyinka has countered the declaration of the Attorney-General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami that ‘Operation Amotekun outfit launched last week by the Southwest governors is illegal.

Soyinka said that Operation Amotekun “has come to stay irrespective of its legality.”

He condemned the decision of the Federal Government of Nigeria to outlaw the South-Western security outfit codenamed Operation Amotekun.

The Nobel Laureate stated this while speaking on Wednesday at the press conference at his Kongi’s Harvest Art Gallery, Freedom Park, Lagos.

“The Amotekun outfit was set up by the SouthWest governors to tackle cases of insecurity in the region which existing security bodies have been unable to address.

” Operation Amotekun has come to stay irrespective of its legality as it is a result of meetings to curb menace in the region.

“Some people who have been sleeping all this time, taking belated actions while villages are been wiped out are now telling us this that people do not have right to flush out the evil ones among them which the exiting security outfits have not been able to do.”
