Soyinka to Amotekun: Ogun will strike if you abuse your uniform
Nobel Laureate, Professor Wole Soyinka has warned the newly inaugurated Amotekun operatives in Ogun State of being strike by Ogun (god of iron) if they abuse their uniform.
The playwright stated this on Thursday during the inauguration of Amotekun operatives in the state.
Soyinka told the Amotekun operatives not to engage in brutality or harassment of innocent people.
He said, “Amotekun, we are watching you. If you abuse your uniform, before Ogun strikes you, we would have dealt with you.”
He warned the police and other security agents not to engage in any competition with the Amotekun corps in Ogun, saying “this is not a replacement for you, you’re too jealous of your uniform.”
The 86-year-old urged them to welcome the new security network into their ranks and allow its operatives to complement their efforts in securing the state.
