Amotekun, Other ‘Quasi-Security Outfits’ Won’t Be Engaged For 2023 Polls- IGP

 

The Inspector-General of Police (IGP) Usman Baba Alkali on Thursday said the Southwest Security Outfit called Amotekun and other “quasi-security outfits” established by state governments won’t participate in next year’s general elections.

The police chief said this in Abuja at a conference for strategic police managers, which includes officers from the ranks of commissioners and above. He stated that such establishments are not legally-backed for the exercise.

“Similarly, the IGP emphasized the fact that all quasi-security outfits established by various state governments and local communities operating under different nomenclatures, structures, and orientations have no legal roles under the Electoral Act and in the electoral process,” Force spokesman, Olumuyiwa Adejobi, said in a statement.
