An Emir from the North is fighting to clear his name over an issue – Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, an EFCC allegation.
It has to do with approaching the commission and pleading for someone alleged to have been involved in violation of the laws of the land as it concerns economic crimes,
Alhaji Ibrahim Sulu-Gambari, the Emir of Ilorin and Chairman Kwara State Council of Chiefs, in the eye of the storm over such an allegation, has come clear.
He just clarified that had never approached the commission for such as alleged since its establishment about 22 years ago.
Speaking when the Chairman of the EFCC, Mr. Ola Olukoyede, paid him a visit in his palace in Ilorin, he could not be doing something contrary when the government was making efforts to get things done right.
The EFCC allegation aside, the royal father also declared his domain, Ilorin as peaceful, “You will discover that most people who carry out criminal acts are always outsiders, and unfortunately, the people of Ilorin always end up being their landlords. Ilorin Emirate is the gateway between the North and the South and I am the gatekeeper.”
While assuring the commission of his support, in the fight against economic crimes, fighting crimes and criminality in the state, he implored the chairman to remain focused.
According to the royal father, he should also uphold the rule of law while doing his job.
