Furthermore, peace in its report said the threat to peace in the Kwara state is the Oyo crisis which led Seriki Fulani to Kwara, as residents raise alarm over possible herders threat, peace also identifies kidnapping as a threat and a cause for concern in Ilorin. It also talked about the political instability in the ruling party that escalated and the effort of the federal government and the Kwara government meeting to resolve communal clashes between the Wara Oja community and the Christian neighbors.
