South-West governors and the apex Yoruba socio-political group, Afenifere,  on Wednesday differed on the All Progressives Congress leader, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu’s  position on the Western Nigerian Security Network, Operation Amotekun.

The governors commended the former Lagos State governor and promised to look into the  issues he raised, but  Afenifere hit  Tinubu hard, saying his statement lacked substance.

After almost three weeks of silence on the launching of Amotekun, Tinubu on Wednesday made his position known on the security outfit, which was launched by the South-West governors in Ibadan on January 9.

Afenifere chieftains, Chief Ayo Adebanjo and Senator Femi Okurounmu, had, in a report published by Sunday PUNCH on January 19,  challenged Tinubu to speak on the security outfit, which the Attorney General of the Federation, Abubakar Malami, on Thursday last week declared illegal.
