Oyo State governor, Seyi Makinde, on Tuesday, signed the Oyo State Security Network Agency Bill 2020 for the establishment of Amotekun Corps into law.
The governor follows in the footsteps of the governors of Ekiti, Osun, Ogun and Ondo who have all signed the bill into law. The governor also did his with a bit of swagger as he donned a leopard skin outfit, a symbol of the security outfit.
The Oyo House of Assembly had on March 3, passed the bill to the governor for assent after organising a public hearing and after scaling third reading.
The Speaker of the Oyo State House of Assembly, Adebo Ogundoyin, had earlier indicated that the signing of the bill would be speedy since it bothers on common interest. The signing of the bill into law held at the Executive Council Chamber, Governor’s Office, Oyo State Secretariat, Agodi, Ibadan.
The state cabinet were present at the signing ceremony at the government house.
