Kwara gov orders probe into journalist’s death
The Governor of Kwara State, AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq has charged security agencies to unravel the cause of the death of a 27-year-old journalist, Yusuf Mubaarak, who was allegedly murdered in Ilorin, the state capital.
The body of the late journalist was discovered in Ilorin on Saturday.
The governor, in a statement by his Chief Press Secretary, Rafiu Ajakaye, which was released to newsmen on Saturday evening described as shocking and saddening the death of Mubaarak under hazy circumstances that he said must be investigated by security agencies.
Mubaarak, a new media personality who hails from Ilorin according to a statement from the Government House, went missing on Wednesday night but his remains were eventually found around the Unity road area of the state capital on Saturday.
“He was buried on Saturday evening in Ilorin amid tears by friends, associates and acquaintances,” the statement said.
“The Governor sends his heartfelt condolences to the family of Mubaarak, his friends and all the youth constituencies in the state.
“The Governor, himself a father, strongly condemns the cowardly violence meted to the lad and demands immediate and thorough investigation into the death of the promising chap to arrest and bring his assailants to justice.
“No resources should be spared to get justice for Mubaarak and his family. We charge the security agencies to cast their nets as widely as possible to answer all pending questions about his painful death.
“The Governor prays Allah to grant Mubaarak Al-Jannah Firdaus and comfort his family and everyone who mourns the promising lad,” the statement further said.
