Lagos State has signed Amotekun into law – Sanwo-Olu To Gani Adams

Temidayo Akinsuyi, Lagos

The Lagos State Government on Monday said Iba Gani Adams, the Aare Ona Kakanfo did not get his facts right when claimed that the state government has refused to sign the Amotekun bill into law.

Adams during an interview at the weekend had said while the other five states in the South-West had signed the Amotekun bill into law, only Lagos state has refused to do so for inexplicable reasons.

“The process of Amotekun started in July 2019 and the South-West governors agreed to establish Amotekun. Five governors in the South-West have signed the bill of Amotekun into law but Lagos State has not signed its bill into law” Adams had said.

But speaking in a chat with Daily Independent, Gbenga Omotosho, the Commissioner for Information said the state government passed the bill into Law in March this year.

“He didn’t get his facts right. Lagos State has signed Amotekun into law. It was done in March this year. You can find out yourself as a journalist. He (Gani Adams) may not have that information” Omotosho said.
