GOVERNOR Abdulfatah Ahmed has denied sponsoring and arming political miscreants.
The Nigerian Police Force had alleged that Ahmed sponsored, funded and armed miscreants, hence supporting political thuggery.
According to a statement by police on Sunday, some of the suspects involved in the Offa bank robbery have confessed to being sponsored by the Kwara State Governor and Senate President Bukola Saraki.
Ahmed however, in a statement described the allegations as false and rejected his alleged indictment by the police or the armed robbery suspects in their custody.
Although, Ahmed admitted that the state government had empowered several youth groups under its acclaimed Small and Medium Enterprises – SME, scheme, but he was quick to add that neither he nor the state government can be held liable for how beneficiaries utilize the credit.
Ahmed therefore urged the police to complete their investigations and charge the suspects to court soon in line with the dictates of the rule of law.
