Court Remands Four For Destroying Campaign Billboards In Kwara

Four suspects have been remanded in prison custody for allegedly destroying campaign billboards and posters in Ilorin, Kwara State.

The Commissioner of Police, Paul Odama, who disclosed this to newsmen in Ilorin said the suspects were members of different political parties.
He said: "After their arrest, we hurriedly did an investigation, charged them to court and were remanded even before anyone could call me.”

"Of course there was no pressure, and nobody called me to set them free.”

Odama expressed concern that as campaigns gather momentum, some political parties have recently destroyed the billboards of other political parties.

“I have informed all the Divisional Police Officers, DPOs in the state to send out their patrol and surveillance teams.

“Anybody caught trying to destroy the billboards or posters of any other political party, will be arrested and prosecuted,” he warned.

He further cautioned the good people of the state that “election is not war, they should go about their campaigns in accordance with the rules of the electoral law.”
