Amotekun, Ebubeagu to get legal backing as reps consider state security

By Our Reporter

A bill seeking to give legal backing to state security outfits has passed second reading on Thursday June 7, 2021, at the house of representatives.

The constitution amendment bill provides for the establishment of state security service commission to regulate the operations of security outfits sponsored by the states.

This means that organisations such as Amotekun in the south-south and Ebube Agu in the south-east, will be officially recognised by the constitution if the bill is passed into law.
