“We are yet to forget and recover from the Offa and Omu-Aran robbery incidents and we can not afford to have more casualties, hence the need for a special task force for Kwara State”
“We also challenge the newly appointed acting Inspector General Of Police Mr. Adamu Mohammed to as a matter of importance switch into action and give special attention to kwara in order to curb political thuggery, armed robbery and other unwanted social vices that recently dominated news from the state”
“We wish to use this medium to appeal to the Youths of Kwara State to desist from been used as political thugs by some selfish politicians who kept their children abroad” he added.
