Ondo State Governor, Oluwarotimi Akeredolu, may have decided to buy sophisticated weapons, according to him, “to protect his people.”
This is contained in a statement on Thursday signed by Governor Akeredolu, wherein he lampooned the federal government for playing double standard with the nation’s security.
Akeredolu wondered why Amotekun, a Southwest regional security outfit, could not bear sophisticated weapons despite continuous call for such, but a state like Katsina has been allowed by Federal Govt the arms bearing right AK47.
Governor Akeredolu said the state under the doctrine of necessity, had decided to fulfil its legal, constitutional and moral duty to the citizens of the state, by acquiring sophisticated weapons, to protect them.
