Former Minister of Aviation, Femi Fani-Kayode, has reacted to Miyetti Allah's demand to be part of the newly established security outfit code-named operation Amotekun in the South-west.

Oyo State chapter of the Miyetti Allah had called for the inclusion of its members in the proposed Amotekun initiative in the state.



Alhaji Yaqub Bello, a former Chairman of MACBAN in the state, made the call on Monday during a public hearing on the Oyo State Security Network Agency Bill, 2020, also known as Amotekun bill.

Bello, while expressing the support of the association to the Amotekun initiative, insisted that only haters of truth would oppose such a move.

He said, “Some of us have been in Oyo state for over 40 years, cohabiting with the natives, married Yoruba women and have children.“ So, our request is to include Myetti Allah as members of Operation Amotekun to enhance the job of the outfit, since we know the terrain of where we rear our cattle.




“Having Fulani among the outfit will make it easier for Amotekun men to distinguish between genuine herdsmen and the criminals while on patrol.“ A Fulani man can also serve as an interpreter while interrogating any suspected herdsman,” Bello said. He admitted that the major objective of the initiative was to curb criminal activities in the society and not to witch hunt any particular body or ethnic group.

But reacting on his official Facebook page on Thursday, Fani-Kayode said, "Recruiting Miyetti Allah into Amotekun is like recruiting demons into an army of angels. It is like recruiting hyenas into an army of lions.


"It is like recruiting vultures into an army of eagles. It is like recruiting sharks into an army of dolphins.

"It is like recruiting Nazis into the Israeli Defence Force. It is like recruiting the Ku Klux Klan into the ranks of the Black Panthers.

"It is like recruiting Hutus into an Army of Tutsis. It is like recruiting white Boers into Nelson Mandela's ANC.
