”The intentions of the Southwest governors are good. However, some people have expressed fears on the regional security force.
”Security is an exclusive responsibility of the Federal Government being supported at times by state governments and other organisations.
”If Operation Amotekun differs from the support being rendered by state governments to the Federal Government on security matters, then it is unconstitutional,” Dingyadi stated.
Dingyadi, who gave the advice in an interview with newsmen in Sokoto, noted that it was worrisome identifying close relations among the gangs perpetrating kidnappings.
“It is beyond doubt that some children, couples and relatives are discovered to have participated in the kidnap of their associates.
”Though we have cases of kidnappings and other crimes in our society, the dimension it is now taking is worrisome,” Dingyadi said.
The minister, who said that the police were doing well in tackling the menace in all forms, enjoined Nigerians to support them in order to ensure maximum success in that regard.
