When criminal Fulani herdsmen were terrorizing the country, kidnappingfor ransom, killing and destroying farmlands, the South West region of the country responded by setting up a regional security outfit which the region named Amotekun.
The Federal Government objected to the security outfit but all the governors of the six states in the region, with the total backing of all the stakeholders including the traditional rulers, the elders and the youths insisted until it became a reality with the State Houses of Assembly passing the bill to give it a legal backing.
In the South Eastern part of the country, some youths, backed by IPOB, attempted to replicate Amotekun by establishing the Eastern Security Network, ESN. But last week, the five governors announced their regional security outfit which they called Ebube Agu.
