Ilorin Cultists Clashes, Sign of Moral and Religion Decadence

Ilorin, a city with more than 200years of existence is an example of a Proverbial Garden with Productive trees with green leaves. Every fruits multiply and replenish the fertile land. People from neighborhood, gate-crash and enjoy merriment from an hour relaxation, or perhaps have an hour Nap in the Garden. This continues not until there was a storm that eroded all the time ever enjoyed facilities in the Garden.  This is the similtude of what happens to this darling city of mine, Ilorin. Alien erosion sweeps away moral and religion from its layer. How do I mean?


However, the issue of Cultists clashes in the city of Ilorin perturbs brains and torments emotions. One would stop and ask, what has gone wrong. From the pasts, what I have been fed about whenever there was any clashes are always not indeges of the town. Students from other neighbouring towns and states were always the culprits. Not until recent, Daughters and Sons of Imams, Mallams and high reputable state men also get their fingers burnt in the scenes. This leads to the only dangling Question: what has gone wrong?


Interesringly, one would want to reckon with Ilorin in term of Darling cultures it is blessed with and hospitable people it harbors. One many occasions, people from another town will be more comfortable to be addressed as Ilorites. Does it still retain these glories? Is it not living on the past Glories? 


However, don't be surprised if I write on this plane or mood. I am emotionally bittered and mentally disturbed to fathom how did we get here. The city with darling cultures are second to none and the hospitable people it harbors are now painted with Bloods. Even the 5years old boy or girl feels the scenerio when the "counts" starts. They have maimed and massacred many in the full glare of the day in my front. I am a born and bred of this city. Are you so surprised. Don't be.


Not quite long, I was invited to a Naming ceremony for lecture and the hall was filled to its brim. The seven-minutes lecture asked why do every Ilorin family houses houses atleast, one cult member. Why are we experiencing moral and Religious decadence? What do youths gain from these? Solutions comes from replies to  these aformentioned Questions. 


Who do we meet for intelligent replies?
