Youth association decries deteriorating security situation in Ilorin



News Today 2

The Ilorin Emirate Youth Development Association (IEYDA) has decried the increasing rate of insecurity in the five local government areas making up the emirate.

The association, in a statement jointly signed by its National President, Alhaji Babatunde Salaudeen and the National Publicity, Alhaji Uthman Jagunma on Saturday, expressed worries over the deteriorating security situation in the ancient city.

According to it, the peace and harmony for which the city and indeed the entire state is known, is now rapidly deteriorating.

The association said that kidnappers and hoodlums had found their ways to the city and the state at large.

The association said that it was concerned with the way the hoodlums had been holding the people of the state into ransom in the course of struggling for survival.

Many of the residents, it said, could no longer walk freely and sleep with their two eyes closed, owing to fear of being robbed or kidnapped, adding that this was against the peaceful nature of the city.

The association called on Gov. AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq, the traditional council, security agencies and other relevant stakeholders to wade in and address the security challenges by flushing out the perpetrators of the dastardly acts.

“We also call on the community and traditional security outfits, the Vigilante Group of Nigeria (VGN), the police and other security agencies to double their efforts in flushing out hoodlums and kidnappers from the emirate and the state at large.

“There can be no peace or harmony in any community or state with deteriorating security situations.

“We, therefore, call on all stakeholders to, as a matter of urgency, wake up and restore the peace and security of the emirate and the entire state,” it said.
