Kwara state government cancelled the 55th independence celebration parade scheduled to take place at the Metropolitan Square, Ilorin. This followed an unfavourable security report that suspected hoodlums might disrupt the programme.
The cancellation of the independence parade, might not be unconnected also with last Thursday’s attack at Ilorin praying ground where some suspected hoodlums stoned the Senate President, Dr. Bukola Saraki, the Emir of Ilorin and other dignitaries.
During the attack, sachets of cold pure water and stones were freely used by the suspected hoodlums, which resulted in pandemonium. 9myad0
