Some suspected killers and cultists arrested in Kwara State have named the Senate President, Bukola Saraki, Gov. Abdulfatah Ahmed, and others as sponsors who ordered them to kill many Kwara indigenes at home and abroad.
The Senate President raised an alarm on this issue, saying the suspects have been transferred to Abuja by the Inspector General of Police in order to implicate him and tarnish his image. He alleged that the IGP is forcing the arrested suspects to implicate him, adding that the case should be concluded in Ilorin. See video below:
Meanwhile, the suspects told police they have been on the payroll of Kwara State Government for years. The leader of the killer squad is the son of popularly known and controversial Magaji Nda, Alhaji Salihu Woru, a self-appointed spokesperson of the Ilorin Emirate Magajis who is currently on suspension. He claimed he is placed on salary Grade Level 16, while his colleagues are on Levels 10 to 15.
In addition, the suspects claimed they were being paid from the Office of the Senate President, adding that they were given Toyota Corolla cars a few months ago to secure their loyalty ahead of the 2019 elections.
Police confirmed that bank statements retrieved from the suspects indicated that they received money on a monthly basis from Saraki and the Kwara State government. However, they’re yet to make the bank statements public.
