Governor Akerelodu told journalists in Abuja on Friday morning that the meeting with Buhari would have taken place if not for his trip to the United Kingdom last week.

The governor insisted that contrary to insinuations borne out of ignorance about the security outfit, Amotekun is not a regional militia by the Southwest states but a child of necessity to help the security agencies to perform better.
