Conference of Nigeria Political Parties (CNPP) in Kwara state has condemned the arrest of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) senatorial candidate for Kwara South, Senator Rafiu Ibrahim, describing it as unlawful. He called on the international community to intervene and not only ensure the release of Senator Ibrahim, but guide against the unlawful arrest of opposition figures in the state. Up till this moment, Senator Rafiu, who is a major contender for Kwara South senatorial district election like our other candidates, is yet to be released. If the peace-loving Senator Rafiu Ibrahim is clamped upon in this manner, our other Candidates are also prone to such flagrant abuse of power. He had since denied any involvement in the mayhem, saying” how can I be involved in the attack against my own people.” Senator Ibrahim hails from Ojoku.
