Former President, Nigerian Bar Association (NBA), Dr Olisa Agbakoba (SAN) and activist Lawyer, Femi Falana (SAN) have said that the governors of the south west Nigeria have done no wrong with the formation of Amotekun corps.
They said they do not have to consult with the Attorney General of the Federation before taking security measures to protect their States.
Agbakoba, who was a guest lecturer at the event, said no one has the power to overrun the constitution. He added: “what they are doing is not policing but security measures.
“The Inspector-General of Police was involved when they started but I don’t know what happened and he backed out.
Maybe they had a re-think”. Agbakoba said the constitution being operated in the country gave the governors wide and enormous powers which he noted they have not exhausted.
According to him, there is enough space in the constitution for everybody to advance.
