Buhari’s Order To Shoot People With AK-47 Also Affects Amotekun- Miyetti Allah

The Miyetti Allah Kautal Hore Association has publicly stated that the directive of President Muhammadu Buhari to security agencies to shoot anyone seen with AK-47 rifles also includes the “Amotekun and other ethnic militias.”

The Miyetti Allah Kautal Hore National Secretary, Saleh Alhassan, was engaged in an interview with SaharaReporters, where he explicitly made it known that the “Amotekun and other ethnic militias are not exemted from the directive of the President.

He said: “First and foremost, our members don’t carry AK-47 riles. But if you have criminals that carry weapons, they are not state actors. So, if the President who is the Commander-in-Chief and whose responsibility it is to ensure law and order in the country, has given a directive, we should comply.

“Everyone, including vigilantes and Amotekun; I don’t think any law permits any non-state actor to carry AK-47 rifles. Amotekun officials should by this order stop carrying AK-47 rifles.

“It is implied… all these ethnic militias. When they say people are carrying AK-47 rifles, they are non-state actors and the government has waited for so long. Even those who got licences, did they get license for AK-47 rifles or just for pump action and dane guns?”
