Kwara PDP Condemns Barbaric Killing of Olukoro

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Kwara State has condemned the gruesome killing of a Retired Army General and Olukoro of Koro in Ekiti local government, His Royal Highness, Oba Segun Aremu.

Kwara PDP in a statement released by its Publicity Secretary,  Olusola Adewara, expressed deep concern over the escalating insecurity in Kwara communities, noting that Kwara is gradually sloughing its peaceful status to a volatile state.

“The gruesome killing of Oba Segun Aremu and the abduction of his wife and other family members by yet-to-be-identified gunmen is a stark reminder of the deteriorating security situation in our state.

“The PDP is disheartened and shocked by this unfortunate incident and extends our heartfelt condolences to the Koro community, Ekiti people, and the traditional institution in the state.

“Our Party stands in solidarity with Koro community home and abroad at this difficult time and calls on security agencies to intensify efforts at rescuing those abducted unhurt from captivity while bringing the perpetrators of this dastard act into timely justice.

The party is equally dismayed by the apparent cold attitude of Governor Abdulrahman Abdulrazaq, who was given the mandate to secure the lives and properties of Kwara but chose to govern the state from far Abuja hiding under the guise of NGF chairman when his own state is boiling with insecurity and violence killings of citizens.

“Governor Abdulrahaman Abdulrazaq has failed to protect the people of Kwara, including traditional institutions across the state despite several such attacks in the past. Instead, the Governor has abdicated his Constitutional role as Chief Security Officer which is principally to ensure the protection of lives and properties thus abandoning our people to the mercy of terrorists, bandits, and gunmen.

“While commiserating with the Koro people for the tragic loss of the king, we pray for the safe return of those abducted and commend the gallant officers who are deployed to comb the forests in search of those hostages even in the face of poor motivation.”
