Attorneys General of the six Southwest states are expected to meet over the Western Nigeria Security Network codenamed Amotekun on the controversial declaration by the Attorney General of the Federation (AGF), Abubakar Malami.
According to The Nation, they will be meeting in one of the states on Thursday (today).
“The state chief law officers will deliberate on the legal aspects of the newly launched Amotekun in relation to the Nigerian constitution and statutory security agencies,” the newspaper said.
It was gathered that they will determine if there is need to enact a new law to back the outfit in every state or otherwise.
Amotekun was launched on January 9 at the Governor’s Office, Ibadan, the Oyo State capital but it was declared illegal by the Attorney General of the Federation (AGF), Abubakar Malami.
He said the regional outfit is incongruent with the Nigerian constitution.
He also pointed out that his office was not carried along in the process of establishing Amotekun.
