Amotekun is contrary to Nigerian law – Malami




Abubakar Malami, Nigeria justice minister has insisted that the inauguration of a paramilitary organisation Amotekun by south-western states of the country is contrary to provisions of the law.

“The setting up of the paramilitary organization called “Amotekun” is illegal and runs contrary to the provisions of the Nigerian law,” Malami said in a statement by his media aide Umar Jibrilu Gwandu.

“The Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria 1999 (as amended) has established the Army, Navy and Airforce, including the Police and other numerous paramilitary organisations for the purpose of the defence of Nigeria.”
