In a statement made available to journalist by his press secretary, Alli Ibraheem, Oluwo said ” Amotekun as an institution should be made to fight traditional corruption most especially ritual killings consuming our children’s blood daily. There is blood of innocent people in the street. It is a failure on the part of government, traditional institution and other stakeholders that no severe legislation is enacted to punish ritual killers and their accomplice”
“I’m not condemning Amotekun but better direction of job specification should be streamlined. It is disheartening we misplaced our priority. Tell me a day you don’t read in newspaper or hear on radio of innocent boys and girls been killed by ritual killers with part(s) removed? May be we want to traditionally legalize ritual killings or why so silence on the such acts perpetrated by fellow human? Or are we all beneficiaries of ritual killings?”
“I want to charge all the stakeholders to streamline the activities of Amotekun to prioritize checkmating of ritual killings to protect innocent lives and enact death penalty for any culprit caught killing human for rituals. I’m not happy with ritual killers. They are not human. Government should help us by enacting a law against ritual killers. Whether male or female, anyone killed by ritual killer is my children. It must stop. Human are not animals that you slaughter, killed and dismembered. It is an aberration. Such is never part of any culture. We should empower Amotekun to challenge such barbaric act”
“Just imagine, an innocent university final year student was killed in Ikoyi few weeks ago, out of ignorance that a spirit will bring money. It is poverty of the mind that could make someone be so gullible. Now, the child is gone. What a wicked people!! What are we doing as people to curtail such? We need an institution that will allay fear against such an act”
“Additionally, to fight traditional corruption, we need agents of unquestionable characters and not accomplice of ritual killings. We need a transparent institution that will lead us out of daily killing of our children for money, promotion, popularity etc”
Oluwo implored Nigerians most especially herbalists, Pastors and Alfas to imbibe new sacrifices such beautifying public places, empowerment, lifting others etc. He noted such is rewarding, promotional and naturally acceptable than killing human for ritual.
