Kwara Govt suspends 2021 Durbar over fear of hijack by hoodlums

 

Following security reports that some hoodlums are planning to hijack the 2021 annual Durbar, the Kwara State Government has announced the suspension of the event earlier scheduled for Wednesday July 21, 2012.

Tbe government cited security reasons for the suspension.

“The suspension, painful as it is given our people’s attachment to it and government’s investments to promote this colourful cultural heritage, follows a police intelligence report which indicated that some forces plan to use the boisterous nature of the cultural event to instigate a breakdown of law and order in the state, thereby complicating national security challenges,” according to a statement by the Permanent Secretary of the Ministry of Communications Hajia Rabiat Mopelola Abdulrahman.

“Government reiterates its commitment to protection of lives and property of all residents of the state, as that is its primary obligation.

“We urge all residents of the state to continue to cooperate with the law enforcement agencies.

“The government once again congratulates Kwarans on the Eid-ul-Kabir celebrations and bids everyone many blessed Eid in the coming years.”
