Kwara state governor, AbdulRahaman AbdulRazaq, has tasked religious and community leaders to do more in their expected roles to compliment government’s efforts in ending insecurity in the country.

The governor gave the admonition during a security interactive forum organised by Kwara state community policing, Gambari district, Ilorin, Kwara state. 

Represented by his special adviser on Strategy, Alhaji Saadu Salahu, AbdulRazaq enjoined the religious and community leaders in the country to enlighten the people, especially the youth on the dangers of engaging in criminalities, including cultism, drug abuse and kidnapping.

He blamed criminal activities such as cultism and drug abuse among the  youths on the non-challant attitudes of parents towards imparting sound moral education in their children and wards.

The governor said his administration has invested a lot of resources on the security architecture of the state.

AbdulRazaq, called on religious and community leaders to compliment the government’s  efforts by curbing thuggery and all criminal activities in their domain.

Chairman of the community Policing, Gambari district,  Ilorin, Alh Abdullahi Yusuf said the event was organised  to compliment the efforts of the state government in the fight against crimes and to serve as a forum for the people of the community on how  to make the society free of all forms of criminality and anti-social behaviours.

Yusuf commended the security agencies in the state for their support for the group.

The national president of Ilorin Emirate Descendants progressive Union (IEDPU), Alhaji Aliyu Otta-Uthman, emphasised the need for parents  to monitor the movement of their children and the friendship they keep.
