Nollywood actor, Uche Maduagwu, has alleged that some Nigerian celebrities have accepted millions of naira from Nigerian politicians to discredit Amotekun.
The actor made this allegation in a recent Instagram post, where he maintained that some politicians want to bring the security force which seeks to complement the police and other state security units in the south-west into disrepute on social media.

“#Amotekun is the only solution to the endless insecurity in the South West, dont allow any #fulani herdsmen politician take it away from you… 👿👿As i speak, some celebrities in #Nigeria have allegedly recieved millions of Naira from some politicians just to discredit Amotekun on social #media, i am the only popular #actor in #Naija that has ever gotten @chrissyteigen attention in #Hollywood i have already spoken to the Governor of #OyoState and i hope to speak with the #Lagos State Governor on this soon. 🙄I am an #Igbo man but i support this great #security outfit by these South West Governors. Let me correct the laughable fallacy that Amotekun is South West governors backdoor to state police, anyone who has been monitoring the increase of kidnapping and banditry in the south west will tell you thats #fakenews, 🤷♂️Amotekun is a quintessential neighbourhood police network, and it is meant to complement the laudable effort of the Nigerian police force.”
