Following Ogun State Government, the executive council of the Ekiti State government has approved the bill for the establishment of Ekiti State Security network agency and Amotekun Corps.
Yinka Oyebode, in a statement on Wednesday said the state exco “discussed the legal framework for the security outfit presented by the Attorney General of the State, Mr Wale Fapounda and approved it”.
“It also directed that the bill be forwarded to the state house of assembly for legislative processing and subsequent passage into law.”
It would be recalled that Amotekun operation was launched Jan 9. But the federal government had declared illegal until the governors in the south west held a meeting with the vice president, Prof Yemi Osinbajo where they agreed to firm up the legal frame works before its operations.
