The South west security outfit code named Amotekun has received the backing of PDP Presidential candidate in the last general election Atiku Abubakar.

In a statement issued, the former vice president noted that the policing administration has been stretched to its limit thus the need for state/community input to address the rapidly growing challenges of insecurity and crime.

He said “It is obvious that current levels of insecurity in the country are giving rise to major initiatives such as Amotekun and the issue need not be controversial in the first place.”

“When local police structures are closest to the grassroots, emergency response will be more effective than the current unwieldy chain of command that renders local government chairmen ineffective when their people are under attacks.”
