Kwara PDP tasks Gov Abdulrazaq on citizens security

Governor Abdulrahman Abdulrazaq has been ordered by the Kwara State chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, to wake up to his responsibilities and rescue Nigerians from the state’s current insecurity.


The PDP claimed that despite reports of kidnappings and killings in several parts of the state, “the governor has not exhibited any willingness to deal with the situation,” in response to the murder of a kidnap victim, Adegboyega Onijala.

The party condemned the murder of Adegboyega Onijala in a statement issued in Ilorin on Thursday by the state Publicity Secretary, Tunde Ashaolu, saying that “the incidence of kidnap for ransom and ritual killings in Kwara State in recent times is disturbing and extremely tragic.”

The party bemoaned the fact that criminal groups such as kidnappers and ritual killers now operate freely throughout the state, destroying lives and causing grief to families.

” What is more worrisome is that the state government, saddled with the responsibility of protecting lives and property, appears helpless in securing the lives of Kwarans who live in perpetual fear of attacks and kidnappings,” it added.

The party has tasked security personnel with investigating the tragic tragedy and apprehending the criminals.

It expressed its condolences to the victim’s family and the people of Isin Local Government Area in general.

Remember that on Wednesday, the police recovered the body of Adegboyega Onijala, who was kidnapped at about 7 p.m. last Saturday in Olla community of Isin Local Government Area of the state by unknown gunmen.
