Nobel Laureate, Prof. Wole Soyinka on Saturday noted that men of the Amotekun Corps, a South-West Security Network Agency, must be trained on the issue of ethics so that they do not become more brutal and ruthless than the defunct SARS.
This, he said while featuring on Arise TV.
Soyinka said, “I have told them anytime you want us to come and assist, we will come even if it is just on the ethical session so that as you are training them to defend us, we are also training their minds so that Amotekun does not become another SARS, very important. We must do everything together.”
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.
