KO LE WERK – Fani Kayode kicks agaisnt recruiting Miyetti Allah into Amotekun

Former Aviation Minister, Femi Fani-Kayode, reacted to members of the Myetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association of Nigeria (MACBAN) seeking to be included in the new security outfit created by South West governors, Amotekun.

Alhaji Yaqub Bello, a former Chairman of MACBAN in the state, had made the suggestion on Monday February 24th during a public hearing on the Oyo State Security Network Agency Bill, 2020, also known as Amotekun bill.  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.”

Recruiting Miyetti Allah into Amotekun is like recruiting demons into an army of angels. It’s like recruiting hyenas into an army of lions. It’s like recruiting vultures into an army of eagles. It’s like recruiting sharks into an army of dolphins. Simply put: KO LE WERK!

It’s like recruiting Nazis into the Israeli Defence Force. It’s like recruiting the Ku Klux Klan into the ranks of the Black Panthers. It’s like recruiting Hutus into an Army ofTutsis. It’s like recruiting the white Boers into Nelson Mandela’s ANC. I say it again: KO LE WERK!
