The Miyetti Allah Kaute Hore has asked the federal government to arrest south-west leaders in charge of Amotekun, a regional security outfit. 

In an interview with The Sun, Bello Bodejo, national president of the group, said the outfit is a plot against the Fulani ethnic group.

On Wednesday, the group had asked south-west governors to give up the outfit after Abubakar Malami, attorney-general of the federation (AGF), had declared it illegal.

“They should not only ban it, but should arrest the leaders of this group. Like I said earlier, nobody or group has more security intelligence than the Police. The Army is doing enough; the DSS is also doing enough, likewise the Civil Defence,” the newspaper quoted Bodejo as saying.

“They are just doing all these things in order to stop the Fulani from coming into their area;  it is just a hidden agenda to prevent the Fulani herdsmen from grazing in their God-given areas.

“If you say you set up Amotekun to protect  your region, what about the Northern Nigeria, what about the Southeast and the South-South and other places that don’t have that kind of thing. Nigeria is one; everything is one, unless they want to divide the country.

“I know some of their leaders have good hearts, but others have evil hearts, and those are the ones coming up with this agenda that the Fulani can’t do this and the Fulani can’t do that; all these things are happening because of Fulani; they are just against the Fulani.

“I support 100 percent the federal government banning it; and the leaders should be arrested. It is a deliberate plot against the Fulani.”

    Illiterate! You want FG to arrest sitting governors, in a Federation? Yoruba land is not your God-given area. It is an ancestral land of a people called YORUBA. Go elsewhere to find your so called “god-given” area. Not my father’s land.

    Amotekun is a plot against the individuals kidnapping, looting and robbing in Yorubaland. If it is the Fulani that did the kidnapping, then Amotekun is against the Fulani. If a Fulani will be law abiding, just like anyone else, he will have nothing to fear. The idea that Yorubaland is your “God given” land will create problems for anyone.

    The Fulani can go to court if they arw fill aggrieved, why are they the only one complaining about Amotekun? Other tribes in Nigeria are not complaining!
