There have been allegations of recklessness and extrajudicial killings against operatives of the security outfit, especially in Oyo State recently.
But while speaking on Saturday, January 9, on a TV programme, Soyinka said Amotekun corps need to be trained to understand the essence of their job.
He said Amotekun operatives must be trained on ethics so that they don’t become brutal and ruthless like men of the defunct police unit.
