The Kwara State Governor Abdulfatah Ahmed on Thursday cancelled the 55th Independence anniversary parade scheduled to hold at the Metropolitan Square, Ilorin, the state capital.

In a statement, Secretary to the Government, Alhaji Sola Gold said the cancellation was due to security reports that certain individuals arrived the state on Wednesday night allegedly with the intention of unlawfully disrupting the Independence Day celebration and endangering lives

He regretted any inconvenience the cancellation of the independence celebration parade may cause, adding that the government considered public safety more paramount
