A Muslim group known as Supreme Council for Sharia in Nigeria has questioned the establishment of Western Nigeria Security Outfit popularly known as Operation Amotekun by Southwest governors. This was opined while addressing journalists in Osogbo, Osun State yesterday.The Vice President, Sheikh Abdurrasheed Hadiyatullah said Amotekun was a covert effort to create a Christian dominated state police. In his words,
“The Amotekun program is viewed as a subtle method of further Christianization of the Southwest by its promoters in their usual manner of having political and power dominance over the Muslims in the region.
“It is another elusive way of establishing a ‘Christian-dominated State Police Force whose affairs would be designed and determined from the Church at the expense of the Muslims majority in the region”.
He further added,
“Any form of the Christian agenda camouflaged as a Security Outfit, such as the Amotekun, where the Muslims population from the Southwest and in the country at large is viewed as a target is an act of injustice, unfairness, inequality, barbarism, savagery and wickedness taken too far and therefore outright unacceptable and thereby condemned in its entirety”.
