He added, “I pray Allah, the Lord of the worlds, to look after the Emir of Ilorin and his household, and grant him good health as he continues to serve the people and our community with everything that he has got.”

The Ilorin Emirate is a traditional state based in the city of Ilorin in Kwara State, Nigeria. It is largely populated by the Yoruba-speaking people, though the kingdom is a hybrid state due to the influence of the many other tribes that make up the city. It is one of the Banza Bakwai – or copy-cats of the legitimate Hausa Kingdoms – as a result of it being part of the Sokoto Caliphate.
