The youths, belonging to Kwara Youths Strategic Movement, gave the warning yesterday in a statement signed by its coordinator, Gegele Ahmed Ibrahim.

The Minister had claimed that Saraki lied in a radio broadcast that he donated ten million naira to Offa Community after the infamous bank robbery. The group, in a swift reaction, accused Lai Mohammed of persistence in linking the senate president to the bank robbery in a bid to score cheap political points ahead of next month’s general elections.
