Yoruba group accuses PDP of plot to undermine Amotekun operations

A Yoruba organization has warned the Ondo State chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, against promoting an agenda that would undermine the operations of the Southwest Security Network, also known as Amotekun.

The Yoruba Youth Indigenous Movement, YYIM, which alleged a plot to halt Amotekun’s operations in the south-west, said the plot would be met with resistance.

According to the group, the PDP was attempting to gain political advantage by utilizing a former governor.

In a statement, the group’s coordinator, Lawal Adekola, claimed that the PDP, through the former governor, had negotiated with some Northerners to discredit Amotekun and weaken its operations by instigating the protest.

“We have it on good authority that the former governor has vowed to use the instrumentality of the PDP in the state to discredit Amotekun and ensure that the people lose confidence in the security outfit.

“This, among others, was one of the conditions that was given to the former governor to impress the PDP Northern power brokers. The ex-governor is desperately looking for their support,” the group claimed.

Reacting to the allegation, the Publicity Secretary of PDP in the State, Kennedy Peretei berated the coordinator of the group, Adekola for making “ridiculous and senseless allegation.”

While emphasising that the questions the party had earlier raised against Amotekun were not addressed, Peretie maintained that the group was playing ethnic card.

“We need not respond to persons whose mouths are controlled by their stomachs,” he declared.
