“Amotekun turning to another SARS,” Wole Soyinka warns


Nobel Laureate, Prof. Wole Soyinka, has  cried out over the alleged nefarious activities of the South-West Security Network Agency, also known as Amotekun.

The renowned Don warned that the regional security agency might become another Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS) of the Nigeria Police Force.

He expressed thia concern while featuring on  Arise TV.

He urged the South West Governors to train the personnel of the security outfit on ethics so that they do not turned to another brutal and ruthless SARS.

It should be noted that news of extrajudicial killings and brutality against Amotekun has been making the rounds.

Soyinka said, “I have told them anytime you want us to come and assist, we will come even if it is just on the ethical session so that as you are training them to defend us, we are also training their minds so that Amotekun does not become another SARS, very important. We must do everything together.”
