Majlis Khuddam-ul-Ahmadiyya, Ojodu District has orientated Ibafo market men and women on dangers inherent in business crimes during its Stop the Crime Campaign held in March, 2019.
It is a fact that criminal behaviors are on the rise and there is a need to sensitise people on why crime is inimical to our society.
The campaign this year took a new stride as the District took the campaign to Ibafo Market. The two previous ones were done at Ibafo Community High School, Ibafo and Community High School, Adesan-Olu, Mowe, Ogun State in 2017 and 2018 respectively.
The market men and women welcomed the Majlis through Iyaloja, Mrs. Fausiyat Ikumapayi.
The seven-man team led by Dil’a Qaid, Bro. AbdurRoqib Akinyemi spoke to the market men and women on the need to eschew all forms of crime in their businesses.
The traders were advised on full measurements of cereal foods or any other items that involve scaling, while the buyers were also advised to ensure good dealings are maintained without any breach of contracts.
They were also advised as parents to train their children with morals and not to engage in examination malpractice, theft, sexual harassment and all sorts of crime.
Some portions of the Holy Qur’an and Holy Bible were read and explained in details to admonish them. They were referred to Q83: 1-7; Proverbs 20:10 and Leviticus 19:35-36.
After the presentation, the Iyaloja of Ibafo Market, Mrs. Fausiyah Ikumapayi was visited and she showed appreciation along with other market sellers who requested more of this campaign.
Pamphlets in hundreds were distributed to many buyers and sellers in the market as a guide in dealing fairly among themselves.
Meanwhile, Majlis members who participated in the campaign were: Bro. Ahmad Babalola, Bro. Abdul Kabeer Alabi, Bro. Asheer Abdul Gafar, Bro. Abdul Azeez Mobolaji, Bro. Abdul Hakeem Olabode, Bro. Abdul Gafar Jimoh and Bro. Yakub Adegboye.
