The Aare Onakakanfo of Yorubaland, Gani Adams has stated that some state governors are recruiting individuals for state security purposes.
Gani Adams accused some governors in Southwest of training special aides as security forces.
Addressing journalists in Kwara State, Gani Adams condemned the move by the governors which he says is without the knowledge of the Inspector General of Police.
“Do you know that some South-West governors are recruiting their political errand boys for security purposes without consulting me or the OPC anymore? And when the issue of security threats comes, they will remember to call the Aare Ona Kakanfo to come and intervene.
I’m not getting a salary from the government, but I’ve been using my money to run this position and our money for this organization. When a government politicizes security, it’s doomed to fail. It’s a signal to Nigeria. If there’s any security problem in the area, they should not hold me or the IG responsible.
The IG has done his part by partnering the organisation with antecedents. But some of our governors want to politicize security issues. It’s uncalled-for and it’s unacceptable,” he said.
