The Ekiti State House of Assembly on Friday passed the bill for the establishment of the State Security Network Agency, otherwise called Amotekun Corps.
This decision followed the presentation of the report of the House Committee on Security and Special Duties at the plenary.
The bill will now be transmitted to Governor Kayode Fayemi for his assent.
The Oyo State House of Assebly plans to table its own version of the bill before the public for their input before taking a final decision.
The Ekiti bill provides for collaboration between the corps and the Police as well as other security agencies for the purpose of maintaining law and order in the state.
