(AFRICAN EXAMINER) – The statement credited to the Osun State commandant of the Amotekun security outfit, Amitolu Shittu, that the agency would not tolerate indecent dressing and bastardizing of Yoruba language by the youths, has set the social media blaze.
According to Shittu, when the outfit begins full operation in March 2021, it will clampdown on youths who dress indecently since the Nigerian constitution does not give them the license to appear naked or indulge in speaking incorrect Yoruba language.
This development has sparked reactions on social media as Nigerians took to the micro-blogging platform to berate the group saying that was not the primary aim, they were set up for.
