Supporters of the Kwara State Governor, Abdulfatah Ahmed, on Friday, April 10, caused a scene around the Emir road in Ilorin, the state capital as they intercepted the governor’s convoy, Premium Times reports.

Governor Ahmed was reportedly returning from the Friday Jumaat prayers when a crowd besieged him, singing victory songs and praising him ahead of Saturday elections – they did not let him until he parted with bundles of money.

It was reported that the Governor threw the money at them, and was allowed to go.

One of the beneficiaries of the governor’s compelled generosity said; “I got one thousand Naira while the women got five hundred.”

However, Ahmed has assured the people of the state of their security before, during and after the Gubernatorial and State Assembly elections.
