Kwara State Commisioner of Police, CP Paul Odama has warned that criminality of any magnitude would not be condoned in the state, especially during election periods.

Odama issued this warning in a press release signed by the state command ‘s spokesperson, SP Ajayi Okansanmi on Monday, January 30.

The warning came after a foiled attack by a miscreant purported to be a member of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) during a political rally of the All Progressives Congress (APC), at Ojuekun area of Ilorin, Sunday, January 29.

The thug, who was later identified as a member of the Aye Confraternity was said to be heading towards Mukhtar Shagaya, APC candidate for Ilorin West/Asa Federal Constituency seat before he was stopped from carrying out his heinous mission.

He said, “Acting swiftly on intelligence to the effect that, at the APC political rally on January 29, 2023, at about 1530 hrs, held at Ojuekun Sarumi area, Ilorin, one Safi Abolaji AKA Ojulari “M,” age 44, of Kankatu area, Ilorin, was overpowered by public-spirited persons and policemen with two locally made short-guns with cartridges and some charms found in his possession.

“During the investigation, the suspect, who confirmed to be an active member of the Aye confraternity, who was also just recently released from the correctional facility after serving a prison term, could not sufficiently explain his presence at the rally, having confirmed to be a member of the People Democratic Party (PDP) in the state.

“An investigation into the matter is ongoing to establish his motive and to arrest other members of his cult group.

The Commissioner of Police in Kwara State, CP Paul Odama, psc (+), has for the umpteenth time warned criminal elements to change their ways or leave Kwara State, as the command would not leave any stone unturned in making Kwara State a state that is conducive for all positive human endeavors.

“The suspect would be charged to court as soon as the investigation into his case is concluded.”
