The spate of insecurity in the southwest forced the six governors to inaugurate the Western Nigerian Security Network codenamed Amotekun to tackle insecurity in the region.

The Security outfit has also gotten the backing of six state assemblies in the region.

Ondo, Oyo, and Ekiti states have inaugurated their state versions.

Ogun has also experienced cases of killings and kidnappings said to be by herdsmen, with many residents of Yewaland seeking refuge in Benin Republic.
