Southwest AGs to review Operation Amotekun legal framework.

Southwest AGs to review Operation Amotekun’s legal framework.

The report of the three-man committee on drafting of the legal framework for the Western Nigeria Security Network codenamed Operation Amotekun will be made public on Thursday.

Attorneys General (AG) in the six Southwest states are expected to meet in Ibadan, the Oyo State capital 

The states are Oyo, Ondo, Ogun, Lagos, Ekiti and Osun.

A three- member committee was set up two weeks ago when they met in Ibadan. 

The committee  was mandated to come up with what can work as a strong legal backing for the operation in each of the six states without running contrary to the Nigerian constitution.

The AGs are working together to ensure that Amotekun exists and operates on a state-by-state basis but with regional cooperation.

 The outfit will operate with the same operational guidelines developed by the Development Agenda for Western Nigeria (DAWN) Commission christened Standard Operational Procedure (SOP).

They are to operate with common insignia such as uniform, patrol vans, recruitment procedure and administrative organogram. They will interact at regional level through sharing of intelligence, joint cooperation in tracking down criminals and training of personnel.
