Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) leader, has thrown his weight behind the Operation Amotekun regional security outfit of the South-West geopolitical zone.

According to Kanu, Amotekun had come to stay regardless of the federal government stance on it.

The federal government, through the Attorney general of the Federation, AGF, Abubakar Malami, had declared the security outfit illegal, saying security was an exclusive preserve of the federal government.

However, speaking on Thursday in a Live Broadcast, monitored by the Nation, Kanu lauded the initiators of the outfit, describing the arrangement as laudable.

“I will support this generation of Yorubas that setup Amotekun. IPOB will work with them. If they want one million men, I will give them to ensure this expansionism is stopped.

“We will support the Yorubas in all forms and by every means necessary.

He added: “IPOB will back Amotekun Security Outfit. Amotekun is not going anywhere. They are here to stay and IPOB will support them”.
