Prayer Held For Embattled Saraki Over CCT Trial

Members of the Ilorin community held a prayer session on Friday to pray for the acquittal of Senate President, Bukola Saraki by the Code of Conduct Tribunal (CCT).

Dressed in white, the prayer warriors that was made up of members of a Muslim movement founded after Senator Saraki’s late father, Olusola Saraki held their prayer at one of Ilorin’s founders, Sheik Alimi’s prayer site at Okesuna near former University of Ilorin mini campus.

The Olusola Saraki movement was founded by former Chairman, Kwara State Local Government Service Commission, Alhaji Kayode Sulyman Yusuf also known as Maja, who is currently battling stroke.

It was said that they observed the Friday prayer at the same place.

Meanwhile not a few people who hail from the ancient town of Ilorin have expressed their displeasure at the congregation, saying that they are hypocrites and serving mammon.
