South east governors to create their own regional security outfit

A full Reports from premium times says; Governors of Nigeria’s South-east states have resolved to ensure the creation of laws to establish a regional security outfit.
The governors’ stance comes weeks after South-west governors met with Vice President Yemi Osinbajo where they agreed to pass similar laws to back up the South-west security outfit, Amotekun.
The Attorney-General of the Federation, Abubakar Malami, had earlier declared Amotekun illegal, saying the constitution only allowed a unitary police structure to be controlled by the federal government.
To resolve the impasse, the South-west governors met with Mr Malami and Mr Osinbajo where it was agreed that the South-west state assemblies should pass laws to legalise the already launched Amotekun.
In their meeting on Sunday, South-east governors resolved to have their state assemblies pass laws to establish their own security outfit.
