He said, “We are happy for what the governors have done. Security is very important to every nation.
A situation in which people can not sleep with their two eyes close is not good for a nation, a situation whereby lives and property are not safe, is not good for a nation and our state governors have taken a step and we shall give them all the necessary support they need.
“We also call on the public that internal vigilance is at the liberty. We must look out when we see stranger around the premises, you must alert the security people.
“The mere fact that the governors of the west can come together and take a decision is good for Yoruba people, we stand united and firm; no shaking and we have the confidence that the outcome of the Amotekun outfit will benefit the people.
