The Nigeria Police Force has arrested the Personal Assistant to the Governor of Kwara State on Political Matters (Kwara South) Mr. Alabi Olalekan.
Reports say Olalekan was arrested on Tuesday night from his residence in Ilorin.
Operatives were said to have immediately taken him to the Force Headquarters in Abuja.
A reliable source in the Kwara government confirmed the development to newsmen on Wednesday.
“Yes, we understand the police invited him to explain his role as one of the channels of the administration’s youth empowerment schemes,” said the source.
It’s not clear if the arrest is connected with the face-off between the Police and the camp of Senate President, Bukola Saraki/Governor Ahmed.
On May 17, Ahmed had described as false and misleading, insinuations linking him and Saraki with the suspected cultists arrested in Ilorin, the state capital, and transferred by the Nigeria Police to Abuja.
He also denied any knowledge of any intention to harm any individual, stressing that the political leadership in the state has never used violence as a political tool.
