<h1>The Kwara State Police Command has arrested Senator Rafiu Ibrahim (Kwara South – PDP) just a day before the National Assembly elections in which he's contesting to be re-elected.</h1>

<p class="">The lawmaker was taken into custody to be questioned a day after the All Progressives Congress (APC) accused him of masterminding an attack on his opponent, <strong>Lola Ashiru</strong>, in Ojoku, Oyun local government area of the state.</p>

<p class="">The attack, which happened on Tuesday, February 19, reportedly left two dead and many others injured.</p>

<p class="">Kwara police spokesperson, <strong>Ajayi Okasanmi</strong>, told Premium Times that Senator Ibrahim was questioned for hours after he honoured an invitation by the authorities on Thursday, February 21.</p>

<p class="">However, he was unsure if Ibrahim was still in custody by Friday morning as claimed by the lawmaker’s associates.</p>

<p class="">The <strong>Peoples Democratic Party (PDP)</strong> has released a statement to describe the lawmaker’s arrest as <em>"completely provocative"</em>.</p>

<p class=""><em>"This resort to police brutality by the APC is a script by a losing team which seeks to introduce violence and use the police to execute their rigging plots,"</em> read an official statement.</p>

<p class="">The PDP and APC have traded blames over Tuesday’s attack in a state that’s considered a battleground state for the 2019 elections set to commence with the President and National Assembly elections on Saturday, February 23.</p>
