In his reaction via his Twitter handle, Fani-Kayode, who said he is not surprised over federal government’s reaction call on the southwest governors to stand firm in their resolve to protect the people.
“Not surprised that AG said Operation Amotekun is illegal.Anybody that believes that a Govt. whose primary interest is to protect the interest & further the fortunes of the Fulani &their herdsmen would want the sons of Oduduwa to defend themselves against mass murder is naive.
“Whether the FG likes it or not, we shall defend ourselves against the barbarity of the Fulani herdsmen & any other terrorist org. I urge the Governors of the SW to stand firm in their resolve to defend and protect our people. We can no longer allow our people to be butchered,” he tweeted.
