Ayeni stated that the corps was apolitical and would not support any political party or take part in political activities.
“While we sympathise with victims of the unfortunate incident, we wish to seize this medium to dissociate the Corps from the unfortunate incident and to size categorically that Officers and men of Amotekun corps were not involved in any way in the clash.
“We, however, advise politicians to exercise restraints and caution their teeming followers to desist from engaging in acts that cause a breach of peace.’’
