The Osun Command of the Western Nigeria Security Network codenamed ‘Operation Amotekun’ has revealed plans to go after those who are indecently dressed and those who are bastardising Yoruba language when it begins full operation.
The Implementation which is targeted at youths will begin full operation March 2021.
Commandant of the security outfit in the state, Amitolu Shittu, also vowed to punch his weight against indecent dressing when the group commences full operations in March 2021.
Speaking at the recently held empowerment programme initiated by a member of the federal parliament, Lawrence Babatunde Ayeni (APC, Ilesha Constituency 1), Mr. Shittu reckoned that the Nigerian Constitution did not include obscenity in its provision for freedom of association.
The Amotekun corps, which was established to complement internal security in the six Southwest states, could appear to have deviated from its core mandate with the new advisory, which bore striking similarities with the tactics of Hisbah police in the North.
Paramilitary groups in the country have long been notorious for issuing guidelines that conflict with Nigeria’s secular principles.
