The House of Representatives has thrown its weight behind the South West security intervention tagged Amotekun.

 

Speaker of the House of Representatives, Femi Gbajabiamilla made the House’s position known on Wednesday in his welcome address upon resumption of plenary after the Christmas break.

 

Gbajabiamilla mandated both the House Leader and Minority Leader to bring to the floor appropriate amendments which will ensure that interventions aimed at protecting lives and properties such as Amotekun are in compliance with the constitution. 

 

The Speaker while noting that citizens are tired of the rising security challenges in the country said the House will support any approach which aims at addressing the problem.
