The governor of Kwara State, Abdulrahman Abdulrazaq has condemned the recent attack on the state APC chairman Bashir Bolarinwa.
It is understood that some suspected political hoodlums attacked Mr. Bolarinwa on Tuesday at Shao, a town in Moro local government area of Kwara State.
The APC chairman was said to be on his way for a reconciliation meeting, as part of his tour across the 16 local government areas to resolve the internal crisis rocking the party, before the incident.
Hoodlums, numbering about 20, holding machetes and some other dangerous weapons were said to have thrown stones at the party chairman and his convoy as they approached the town, a witness narrated.
They were shouting “Bolarinwa Ole, Bolarinwa Ole” meaning, “Bolarinwa is a thief”.
Reacting to the alleged attack, Governor Abdulrasaq Abdulrahman, in a statement made available to this online medium by his Chief Press Secretary, Rafiu Ajakaiye condemned the attack.
“We condemn in strongest terms possible the alleged attack on the state chairman of the APC Hon. Bashiru Omolaja Bolarinwa allegedly by some hoodlums in Moro local government,” Mr Abdulrahman said in the statement.
“This is very disturbing. The governor is very proud of the peaceful atmosphere in the state and seriously frowns at any action that might heat up the polity under whatever guise.”
He also called on the security agencies to not just fish out those behind the attack but to also make sure they face the full weight of the law.
