He recently revealed this in an interview on Channels Television’s Sunday Politics at the Lagos House.
According to him, it is simply a name change in the case of the state because apart from community policing, operatives of the LNSC also engage in border patrol.
Sanwo-Olu added that he has over 7,000 neighbourhood watchl personnel in Lagos, who are doing exactly the same thing Amotekun was set up for.
His words, “It’s just a name change in the case of Lagos. I appreciate what my colleague governors are doing, and they also appreciate the peculiar nature of Lagos.”
“I have got over 7,000 neighbourhood watch personnel in Lagos, who are doing exactly the same thing that we have Amotekun doing.”
“They are there at the border post giving us daily monitoring in their localities and feeding it back to the central. They are the ones feeding us with information. But they cannot carry arms and prosecute people.”
“The borders that I have in Lagos are outside of the Atlantic Ocean is Ogun state.”
