Abdulkadir Balarabe Musa

The federal government’s declaration of ‘Operation Amotekun’ as illegal has received a boost from the former civilian governor of old Kaduna State, Alhaji Abdulkadir Balarabe Musa.

The ex-governor described the actions of the governors of Southwest geopolitical zone in establishing the Western Nigeria Security Network, as a ploy by some Yoruba to declare Oduduwa Republic.
Balarabe Musa state this at the weekend while speaking with journalists at the weekend. He cautioned the Federal Government and Nigerians not to allow the establishment of Amotekun to stand.
He further explained that some of the security components of the outfit like the Oodua Peoples Congress (OPC) have records of recklessness in terms of securing the lives and property of non-Yoruba.
Balarabe Musa also dismissed comments comparing Hisbah and the Civilian JTF operating in the northern part of the country with Amotekun as untrue, saying both groups are legal having gone through the scrutiny of the police, army and legal processes.
He further described Afenifere, one of the supporters of the Amotekun project, as a group made up of people with secessionist agenda.
“First of all, taking into account what happened in the history of Nigeria, this Amotekun will lead to a declaration of Oduduwa Republic. Look at the composition of those who constitute the organization in addition to the six state governors”, he added.
He blamed evolvement of Amotekun on incompetence of the Federal Government even as he queried Yoruba leaders coming up with what he sees as sad development of sectional security outfit to know why, when the sitting government is an alliance between North and South West.
“There is also the OPC, Afenifere, and others. So, the fear is quite obvious. And this is in spite of the fact that this government is incompetent. Definitely, this government is incompetent. And it is because of the incompetence of this government that this problem has arisen. But let us also not forget that this Federal Government is an alliance between the North and the Southwest. So, why should this happen? Any correction in the set up of the country is possible if this alliance, which controls government in the country can do its work”, he maintained.
