A group of Nigerians in Diaspora, Yoruba One Voice (YOV) on Wednesday appealed to Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, to urgently inaugurate the Southwest Security Network, Amotekun in the state.
The group, which expressed concern about the spate of insecurity in the state, wondered why it took the governor almost a year to inaugurate the Southwest Security outfit as it had been done in other states of the region.
YOV in a statement by the Secretary General of the group, Dr Shina Okanlomo said Nigerians in the diaspora are not happy with the present security situation in the state, adding that Lagos state is becoming volatile with activities of cultists, and ritualists in the state.
“How do you want us to come back home where our lives and that of our families back home aren’t safe?Nigerians in the Diaspora are worried.None of us abroad cannot contemplate coming to Nigeria without giving a thought about the porous security situation in the country.
“Most unfortunate is the fact that a mega city like Lagos state tops the list of the most volatile state in the region. This is not unconnected with the activities of cultists and ritualists that have been terrorising the state. (Independent)
