The call was made by the Federation of Yoruba Consciousness and Culture (Alajobi) this through its President, Evangelist Kunle Adesokan in Ibadan.
The group has its members in Oyo, Ogun, Ekiti, Osun, Ondo and Lagos States.
Speaking on the murder of the daughter of the Yoruba leader, he said, “till today, no arrest has been made or anyone prosecuted for the crime”.
To him, the support of traditional rulers in the zone such as the Ooni of Ife, Oba Eniitan Adeyeye Ogunwusi and others deserved accolades.
Amotekun, he said, should be seen as “the Yoruba local security arrangement to tackle any attack on our lands without undermining the conventional police.
Describing numerous attacks on Yoruba people as unacceptable, he stated that “lives of the residents in the state are threatened by bandits who seem to be enjoying the backings of criminal elements at the federal level”.
He called on all indigenes and residents in the South West to rally round Development Agenda for Western Nigeria led by Mr. Seye Oyeleye, the initiator of the security summit which eventually graduated to the formation of the security outfit.
He also pleaded with the state governors of Lagos, Osun, Ondo, Ogun, Oyo, and the Ekiti States to ensure that all machinery is put in motion to kick start operations of the outfit.
