The Ogun State House of Assembly has passed the State Security Network Agency and Amotekun Corps bill barely 19 days after receiving the Bill from the Executive Arm, as part of its resolve to stem the tide of crimes, banditry and other violent acts.
The Bill titled: “HB No 35/OG/2020- “A Bill for a law to establish the Ogun State Security Network Agency and Amotekun Corps to Assist in Maintaining Law and Order in the State and Connected Purposes” was passed on Tuesday during a plenary presided over by the Speaker, Kunle Oluomo.
The passage followed the presentation of report of the Special Ad-hoc Committee on Security and Strategy by the Majority Leader, Yusuf Sherif.
Sherif who moved the motion for the adoption of the report, was seconded by Hon. Musefiu Lamidi and supported by the Whole House through a voice vote after which the bill was later read and adopted Clause – by – Clause by the Committee of the whole House.
The motion for the third reading of the bill was later moved by the Majority Leader, seconded by Hon. Olusola Adams, while the Acting Clerk of the Assembly, Deji Adeyemo, did the third reading of the bill.
Speaker Oluomo thereafter directed that a clean copy of the bill be forwarded to the Governor, Prince Dapo Abiodun for his assent.
