Islamic Group Attacks Amotekun, Makes Accusations


The Muslim Rights Concern (MURIC) has accused Amotekun, the South West regional security outfit, of intimidating other ethnic groups living and doing business in the region. According to the Islamic organization, members of Amotekun are profiling and intimidating Northerners traveling down south.

MURIC further accused the security outfit of engaging in extra-judicial killings of Yoruba people. The group’s claim was contained in a statement signed and issued to DAILY POST on Thursday by its director, Prof. Ishaq Akintola.

“Reports reaching us indicate that the South West regional security outfit, Amotekun, has been engaging in extra-judicial killings,” MURIC said.

“Among those killed without proper recourse to law were Akolade Gbadebo, a 400 level student of the University of Ibadan, who was killed on 26th December, 2020. Seven Fulanis were also reported killed at Ayete in Ibarapa North Local Government area of Oyo State on Monday, 11th January, 2021.

“We also have reports that vehicles coming from or going to the North are being stopped by members of the Amotekun corps. They order Hausa-Fulanis to disembark, search them and almost strip them naked.
