Kwara’s Justice Ministry Denies Cultists Implicated Saraki, Ahmed


The Kwara State Ministry of Justice has said that the suspected cultists arrested in the state did not implicate Bukola Saraki, Senate President, and Abdulfatah Ahmed, the state Governor, or anybody top government official in their confessional statement.

Jimoh Mumini, the Director of Public Prosecution in the state ministry, disclosed this in a statement issued to newsmen on Saturday.

He described as untrue the story in the media which alleged that the suspects implicated some influential Nigerians stressing that there was no truth in the story.

''The attention of the Kwara State Ministry of Justice has been drawn to a story published by an online medium that the suspected cultists arrested and interrogated by the Police in Ilorin and recommended for trial by the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) but suddenly transferred to Police Headquarters, Abuja, had in their statement indicted some top personalities.

''We want to state categorically that there is no iota of truth in the said story. Our belief that the said story is false arose from the fact that the summary of the statement voluntarily made by the suspects and on the basis of which they were recommended for trial in Ilorin is contained in the press statement read by the Police Commissioner on May 10, 2018. We maintain that there was no portion of the press statement where the suspects were said to have indicted any top personality,'' the statement read in part.

Mumini further denied any discussions between the Director of Public Prosecutions and the Commissioner of Police to pervert the course of justice. He urged the public to ignore such reports.
