Why Is Sunday Igboho Not Joining Amotekun – Former Assistant Director of DSS Asks
Dennis Amachree, a former Assistant Director with the Department of State Services (DSS), has stated that popular Yoruba rights activist, Sunday Igboho should have teamed up with the Amotekun corps rather than trying to secede the south-west region.
He made this disclosure in a fresh interview with Channels Television on Friday, July 2 saying the DSS attack on Sunday Igboho’s residence is preemptive and comes as a deterrent to those hoarding weaponry in various parts of the country.
“The action of the DSS is preemptive and it is also a warning to all those who have been stockpiling arms in different parts of the country.
“We have Amotekun. Why is Sunday not operating with Amotekun? This is a question that should be asked but he is operating a separate thing different from Amotekun and of course, having all kinds of weapons.
“With all those loaded magazines, that means he is ready for war and I don’t think that is the way to go. If people are going for self-determination, there are peaceful ways of going about it.”
