Speaker of the Nigerian House of Representatives, Femi Gbajabiamila has directed the Leader of the House, Hassan Ado Dogwa to bring a bill that will amend the 1999 constitution to recognize Amotekun and other similar security outfits in the country.
Gbajabiamila in his welcome address said the emergence of Amotekun and similar security outfits is as a result of the manifestation gaps in the security architecture in the country.
The Amotekun security outfit launched by the governors of the 6 southwest states has caused controversy, especially between the Federal government through the Attorney General of the Federation, Abubakar Malami and the governors of the southwest states over the legality of the group.
