“While they are plotting to kill other people for exercising their constitutional rights, they are not aware that their own life is not assured as well. We at Kwara Must Change will not beg them to desist from their evil plot, but they must know that we are not in any way scared of them. We make bold to say that, we will never live in fear of their evil plans. Instead of running away from them, we will face them squarely,” vowed the group.
