The President, Ilorin Emirate Descendant Progressive Union (IEDPU), Ambassador Sheikh AbdulAzeez
has warned all owners of bars and joints of alcohol sellers within Ilorin metropolis to vacate all indicated
areas for their own benefit before it istoo late.
Abdulazeez gave this warning recently while speaking at the Gambari Community peace and security
meeting, held at Karuma Primary School, Ilorin. He noted that it has come to the union's notice that  Ilorin
police officers have not shown any interest in the new law by the Kwara State House of Assembly banning
the sale of alcohol in some areas within Ilorin.
He explained that the police should start chasing them out of those areas since the law has been passed
by the legislative and the Governor has signed it into law, pointing out that if the police refuses to take
any action, the Ilorin Emirate would take serious action on them by itself.
The IEDPU President emphasized that anyone who feels the new law is unfair, he or her should go back to
his or her state, saying that the law has come to stay because the Emirate will be expanding its metro
patrol team across the capital.

of the traditional father of the area and other traditional and religious title holders within the community.
He explained that the looting of shops, vandalization, and destruction of people’s property, harassment
and molesting of innocent people have become thing of the past in Gambari community, noting that this
has made the state police command and other security agencies to collaborate with the community
security in ensuring a free crime society.

it Christians or Muslims in the country, saying that the religious tenet works directly with the conscience
of man and is a guide to right living.
Adedayo stressed the importance of traditional rulers in our society, describing them as key to the
success or failure of the security administration in the country because they operate at the grass-root
