Alarmed by the suspected killing of a female corps member serving in the state, the Kwara State Government has requested the Commissioner of Police, Alhaji Garba Salihu, to redouble investigative efforts to finish out and prosecute the perpetrators of the heinous act.
The Secretary to the State Government, Alhaji Sola Isiaka Gold, who conveyed the directive in a letter signed on his behalf by the Permanent Secretary (General Services), Alh. M. A Shehu, said the government is disturbed by the sad news of the death of the Corp member, Ms. Yetunde Idowu, whose body was discovered on a street in GRA, Ilorin.
Alhaji Gold said that while every life requires protection from the security agencies, corpers on national service in Kwara State deserve special care and attention because they are serving their fatherland away from their families.
The State Government therefore called on the Commissioner of Police to accelerate the investigations to unravel the circumstances leading to the corps member’s death and bring to book any culprit (s) that may have been involved in the dastardly act.
