AMOTEKUN: AKEREDOLU REPLIES MALAMI, SAYS LAWS ARE NOT MADE IN AGF’S OFFICE

Chairman of the South-West Governors’ Forum and
Ondo State Governor, Arakunrin Oluwarotimi Akeredolu,
SAN, has responded to the comments attributed to the
Attorney General and Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami,
declaring ‘Operation Amotekun’ as an illegal outfit.
Mr. Akeredolu in an  interview told media
that it is clear laws are not made in the office of
the AGF, but he can interpret the laws and advise the FG on
matters relating to the law.
“One thing is clear, laws are not made in the office of the
Attorney General; he can only interpret the laws and give
positions of government on matters relating to the law.
“When he comes out with relevant portions of the law on
the matter, we will consider it and respond adequately as
the law stipulates.”
The Governor who alongside his colleagues from other
Southwest states, last week, launched Amotekun in Ibadan,
the Oyo state capital, added that the governors from the
region are yet to meet since the pronouncement from the
office of the AGF.
“We have not met, but I can assure you that when we meet,
we will adequately respond to the position of the AGF.”
