AMOTEKUN CLEAERS OYO OFF CRIMINAL FULANI HERDSMEN
Foreign criminal Fulani herdsmen who have been terrorising the Oyo state, Southwest of Nigeria were reportedly cleared off last week.
We’ll expose those supporting herdsmen to unleash terror on Oyo state says the security outfit, Amotekun commandant
THE Chairman, Oyo State Security Network Agency, also known as Amotekun, Gen. Kunle Togun (retd) has said the security outfit has stumbled on credible evidence that Fulani herders who kidnap, maim, rape, or kill innocent people in the South-West zone of the country are not Nigerians.
He gave this hint in an exclusive chat with Vanguard.
The retired Army general said, in a polite manner, that the issue of security is not something that should be thrown into public space as people expect.
According to him, the security outfit has made tremendous achievements since it came on board but people “know little or don’t even know anything at all.”
Togun said it will be foolish for any security agency which puts its security plans in the public domain noting such plans could be sabotaged.
He said: “The Army will never tell you how they will counter Boko Haram. We can’t be telling people this and that. It will be tantamount to exposing our security plans which is not in tandem with security issues. It’s not done in security.
“What people should understand is that this is a security agency and security operations are secret. So, we can’t be revealing our plans because people will sabotage it.”
When asked about the achievements of the outfit and how to forge ahead in ensuring peace reigns in the Pacesetter State, he simply said: “There is a time, probably next Friday or early next week, when we shall invite the press for a briefing. It is there we shall give details of what is happening, our challenges, and what we expect from people. We are planning that.
“Some of the achievements we have made are not known to people because we don’t talk.
“We’ll show them with evidence especially those making noise that those Fulani herders troubling us are Nigerians. We have credible evidence that they are not Nigerians. We will show the whole world all their activities and those Nigerians who are supporting them in gaining entry into the country.
“We have started clearing some of them out of Oke Ogun. That day, people will know how far we have gone.”
