Nobel Laureate, Professor Wole Soyinka, has warned that South-West Security Network Agency, also known as Amotekun Corps, may become another Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS) of the Nigeria Police Force, a squad which was dissolved by the Police authorities after the brutality and criminality of its operatives led to nationwide protests and riots last October.
Soyinka stated this on Saturday while featuring on Arise TV.
The revered author noted that men of the Amotekun Corps must be trained on the issue of ethics so that they do not become more brutal and ruthless than the defunct SARS.
Ondo and Oyo States have launched the security outfit, which was endorsed by six South-West states last year.
However, there have been allegations of recklessness and extrajudicial killings against the security outfit, especially in Oyo State.
