Press Statement On Saraki Invitation By Police Over Offa Robbery Incident


Kwara Must Change on Sunday, 3rd June 2018 read the news of invitation of Senate President, Bukola Saraki by the Nigeria Police Force over the tragic Offa Bank Robbery incident with utmost surprise and curiosity and we encourage all Nigerian to follow the police investigation with all sense of responsibility, devoid of any political sentiments.

This is very important because, the tragic invasion of Offa community in Offa local government area of Kwara State in April 2018, which claimed over 33 innocent lives must not be confused with politics and the police report on such a scary development must be monitored very objectively.

According to the report credited to police Spokesperson Jimoh Moshood, Saraki was invited after he was mentioned by five of the suspected armed robbers, who confessed to being part of the robbery gang that operated in Offa and killed over 33 people.

The police claimed that five gang leaders indicted Mr. Saraki after they confessed that they were political thugs of the Senate President and the Governor of Kwara State, Abdulfatah Ahmed under the name Youth Liberation Movement a.k.a “Good Boys” and were sponsored with firearms, money and operational vehicles.

Kwara Must Change wishes to state very clearly that, we are still watching the development and would react properly after more information is revealed. However, we urge all Nigerians to be cautious and resist the temptation of wanting to politicize an important matter like the Offa robbery incident.

Atiku Shares Deep Lessons From Black Panther

Over the weekend, I joined my children to watch the much talked about ‘Black Panther’. It was a good film, and I was happy they took me to see it. However, I came out of the movie theatre a little upset. When the first scenes came up, and I saw “Sambisa Forest” I was unhappy that the only reference the film makers could have for Nigeria was a negative one, but I was later encouraged by the thought of Africans solving African problems. That is a good thing, the kinds of things we used to do. For young people who may not remember, Nigerian civil servants and indeed most able citizens used to contribute money every month to support the struggle against Apartheid in South Africa. Nigeria was the single stabilizing force across West Africa. Helping to restore peace in Liberia and Sierra Leone are examples of the gigantic status we once had.

The maiden edition of the 'my phone photography exhibition' held on the 23rd of March. The Shehu Musa Yar'adua Centre located in central area, Abuja, played host to this event. It was an atmosphere filled with calmness but you could also hear the joy and excitement in the voices of the over 100 people who came through the exhibition doors. 
The idea of the exhibition was born by one of the exhibitors (Omofuoma Agharite). Haven taken numerous pictures with her phone, she wanted to share those pictures with others and at the same time support a charity organisation. It was then that the idea was born and given to Ivy Events to nurture. After months of planning and execution, a group of exhibitors came together to showcase some of the amazing pictures that they had photographed with only their phones.
