The Ogun State League of Imams and Alfas has urged the Federal Government to see to the end of insecurity across the country.
The league, in its Wallah message, noted that it is time for leaders in the country to uproot insecurity including the menace of banditry, kidnapping, extrajudicial killings, widespread raping of innocent girls and women, and all other vices that presently bedevil the country.
In the message signed by State Secretary-General, Imam Tajudeen Adewumi, the league also felicitated the Muslim Ummah in the country on the occasion of the Eid-il-Fitri celebration which marks the end of the Ramadan fast.
Speaking on the insecurity, Adewumi said “there is the fear of the unknown as we go about our various activities and enterprises,” adding that people are generally becoming afraid to stay in or live in their homes.
“As a nation, insecurity has become a very serious issue and is taking a big toll on us from all angles-human, material, economic, agricultural etc,” he noted.
The message further reads: “The League felicitates with all Muslims on the occasion of this year’s Eid-l-Fitri, praying Allah for continued protection, guidance and abundant provision for us as an Ummah and as a nation.
“The league advises Muslims and all to be more security conscious, avoid unnecessary night travels and make their movements known to their families.
“Let us all continue to pray for our leaders for divine wisdom and guidance as they lead us on.”
