The Emir of Ilorin and Chairman Kwara State Council of Chiefs, Mai-Martaba Alhaji Ibrahim Sulu-Gambari, has urged adherents of the two religions; Islam and Christianity to continue to live in peace and harmony in the State.
He stated this in statement issued on Wednesday by his Spokesperson, Mallam Abdulazeez Arowona. The Emir described the ongoing public disturbances on the issue of hijab usage by female students of 10 government grant-aided schools as unwarranted.
Alhaji Sulu-Gambari added that, “No group or individual should take laws into the hands. Ilorin is known for peaceful co-existence nationwide. Let us remain calm and resolute to the fact that the position of law is clear on the matter.
“There is no fight between Muslims and Christians. Let us avoid religions crisis of any kind. Islam and christianity preaches peace and harmony. Let us also avoid division and enemity in our society.”
The Emir therefore appealed to religions leaders to prevail on their followers to respected constituted authorities in their dealings with members of the public.
