Ondo State governor and Chairman of Southwest Governors’ Forum, Oluwarotimi Akeredolu, has yet again challenged the Federal Government to tell him why Katsina Sate was allowed to procure arms for their local security outfit, while at the same time denying south-western States.

In a statement in Akure by the Chief Press Secretary to the Governor, Mr. Richard Olatunde, Akeredolu said the recent statement by Buhari’s SSA on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu, restraining state security outfits from bearing automatic weapons was untenable.

He said, “The report by TVC News that went viral showed the Kastina vigilantes training with AK47. This is the same weapon, which approval has vehemently been refused for use by Amotekun Corps and other state security outfits.”
