Don’t reintroduce thuggery, Kwara APC warns Saraki after thug clash with soldiers in Ilorin

The All Progressive Congress APC Kwara state chapter has warns the former senate president Bukola Saraki against reintroduction of thuggery to Kwara politics decries hoodlums attack on security agencies at Ile Arugbo

Kwara State Chapter of the All Progressive Congress (APC) has cautioned Senator Bukola Saraki against continuation of his trademark involvement of thugs in his political activities, saying that era is gone for good in the state.

The party’s statement, issued by the state publicity secretary of the party Alhaji Tajudeen Folaranmi Aro came on the heels of attacks on security agencies by some hoodlums in the convoy of Senator Saraki on Saturday.

A local news medium has reported one death in the attack on security operatives by hoodlums loyal to Senator Saraki.

“For the first time since Senator Bukola Saraki and his minions were overwhelmingly rejected by the people of Kwara State, our state again on Saturday recorded a sad reign of hoodlums at an event organised by the senator. This is sad and unacceptable.

It is a reminder to the dark days of his inglorious reign in the state when he not only patronised hoodlums but he also placed them on government’s payroll, thereby legitimising thuggery,” the statement said.

“We have since 2019 put those ugly days of official patronage of hoodlums behind us as a state. While Senator Saraki is welcome back to Kwara from his self-exile after his crushing defeat, we implore him not to bring back the era of thuggery which our government has succeeded in stamping out.

“With his supporters, including the urchins, driving against the traffic, blocking public roads, injuring innocent citizens going about their own businesses, and constituting nuisance to members of the public as was the practice in those ugly years, members of the public have wondered what has changed in the orientation of Senator Saraki, especially his patronage of thugs who had a history of tormenting members of the public and were indeed among those caught in the unfortunate Offa robbery with Government House vehicles.

“It is of great concern that many people were injured as a result of the lawless conduct of Senator Saraki and his minions. For example, many innocent persons have been rushed to General Hospital after sustaining serious injuries from the reckless behaviour of his followers.

We do not want such ugly development again in Kwara. We urge decent members of the society to call Senator Saraki and his followers to order.” – Alhaji Tajudeen Folaranmi Aro, APC Publicity Secretary, Kwara State
