The recent warning by the Nigeria Military chiefs to state governors especially from South-west and south-south got people talking. This is coming after severally calls from Miyetti Allah to Federal Government and Nigerian Police to arrest any yoruba leader that supports Amotekun security initiative.

During a Joint Security Meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari at the Villa, the Army Chief told the president that governors does not have any business dealing with Internal security issues in their respective states.

Nigeria constitution gave the governors power as the Chief Security Officer of the various states to protect and safeguard lives and properties using any legal means available to them.

If the Army chiefs says otherwise, it means they lack the understanding of the constitution and does not know their responsibility as an institution.
