A leading Pro-Democracy group in Kwara State, Kwara Must Change has listed names of people whose lives have been put under consistent threat by political thugs loyal to the ruling People’s Democratic Party (PDP) in Kwara State.
In a statement by the group’s State coordinator, Comrade Yusuf Olatunji, Kwara Must Change stated that some government critics and opposition leaders are being targeted by political thugs and assassins in the state.
Recall that recently, several people were shot during an All Progressive Congress (APC) campaign in Ilorin.
Kwara Must Change stated that in 2018, immediately after the All Progressive Congress (APC) won by-election in Kwara South, the winner of the election, Hon.
Abdulraheem Ajulo Opin and the APC governorship candidate, Abdulrahman Abdulrazaq were attacked by political thugs on their way to Ilorin.
Similarly, the APC governorship candidate, Abdulrahman Abdulrazaq and other APC leaders in Ilorin, the Kwara State capital were recently rescued from political assassins who stormed the venue of APC rally and opened fire on the people.
‘’We have equally seen the consistent attack on Comrade Musbau Esinrogunjo, AMB. Yahaya Seriki and Comrade Akaje Ibrahim from Agabji, all of whom have become the prime target in recent time, It said.
The group also added that the leadership of Kwara Must Change has not been speared in this consistent threat and attacks, noting that its president and coordinators across the state have been repeatedly targeted without provocation over the years.
It therefore warned that the leader of the ruling party, Senator Bukola Saraki shall be held responsible, should anything happen to all the people identified because he has never called his supporters to order, neither did he ever condemned their unacceptable behavior.
Specifically, Kwara Must Change listed 7 people, whose live is under threat in Kwara state, which include the All Progressive Congress (APC) governorship candidate, Abdulrahman Abdulrazaq, member of federal house of representative, Honourable Abdulraheem Ajulo Opin, APC governorship aspirant, AMB.
