Kwara Must Change, a Kwara State-based advocacy group, has condemned the governor of Kwara State, Mr. Abdulfattah Ahmed, for his silence over the killing of three students by soldiers attached to Mr. Shaaba Lafiagi, the senator representing Kwara North Senatorial District. The group made its position known in a statement issued on Saturday.
The shooting incident, which occurred in Lafiagi town, Edu Local Government Area, on 17 November, also left many others with grave injuries. The victims were part of the crowd of protesters involved in a rally against poor representation provided by Mr. Lafiagi.Read more
“However, since this unfortunate incident happened, there has been no official reaction from either the state or local government. We strongly condemn this conspiracy of silence. The Chairman of Edu Local Government, in whose territory the wicked act took place, has not deemed it proper to acknowledge the sad incident that claimed many lives under his watch. Neither has the Kwara State governor, who is the chief security officer of the state,” said Kwara Must Change.Read more
