“But why now? What offence has the deceased committed? I am not a politician and don't have sympathy for any political party, but the callous action of the governor should be condemned by peace-loving people of Kwara state. Enough of this campaign of calumny and reprisal attack! Rest in peace Baba Saraki.”
