This was said by the Emir on Tuesday (August 9, 2022) in response to amorous pre-wedding video pictures taken at the Mosque that have since gone viral. He denied allowing anyone entry to the Mosque’s Main Hall and urged anyone mentioning him to cease immediately.

Alhaji Sulu-Gambari stated that he saw the video under review with the utmost disappointment in a statement that was signed by Alhaji Shehu Abdulgafar, OON, the Chairman of the Central Working Committee of the Mosque and Danmadami of Ilorin.

“He appreciated the concerns and comments generated by the video since it went viral,adding that everything worth doing would be done to ensure that a repeat of the incident does not occur.

“The Emir,who is also the Chairman of the Kwara State Council of Emirs and Obas, added that the Mosque,particularly the ultramodern edifice, does not exist for such a practice from anyone or group no matter how highly placed as he said that it was important for all Ilorin patriots and their friends to judiciously use the Mosque for the purpose of worship and community development.

“The Emir, therefore, charged the Central Working Committee of the Mosque and staff of the edifice to ensure that no one is allowed to shoot any video or take amorous photograph at the Mosque.

“The Monarch warned that the violation of this directive would be visited with appropriate sanctions so as to discourage such illicit practice,which exposes the Mosque and Ilorin Emirate at large to ridicule.”
