Kwara PDP Calls For Prosecution Of Eshinrogunjo Over Possession Of Unauthorized Ammunition


The Kwara State chapter of the People's Democratic Party (PDP) has reacted to online footage of the arrest of Comrade Musibau Esinrogunjo, aide to Governor Abdulrahman Abdulrazaq, over unlawful possession of firearms and cannabis.

Earlier this morning, a video surfaced online showing some police officers questioning and beating Esinrogunjo over possession of live bullets and illegal substances.

Reacting to the incident, the Kwara PDP in a statement issued by its State Chairman, Rt Hon. Babatunde Muhammed, called for the prosecution of the Governor’s Special Assistant and demanded that the matter must not be swept under the carpet.

“The attention of our party has been drawn to the viral video showing some police officers questioning and beating the Special Assistant to Governor Abdulrazaq of Kwara State, Comrade Musibau Esinrogunjo, over possession of live bullets and illegal substance suspected to marijuana.

“This could be part of the early signs of Governor Abdulrazaq’s grand plot to import arms and ammunition into the State ahead of the 2023 general elections. 

"The statement by the Kwara Police Command on the incident is a smoke-screen to hide the truth from the public. This is an attempt by the police to cover Esinrigunjo and shield from prosecution, is uncalled for and should be condemned. 

“We are thereby calling on the Police authorities to order proper prosecution of the Governor’s aide. He must also be prosecuted for other infractions he has allegedly committed like breaking traffic rules and physical assault on a traffic warden. If found guilty, he should be made to face the law. The matter must not be swept under the carpet," the statement reads in part.

Signed

Rt Hon Babatunde Muhammed,
State Chairman,
Kwara PDP
