I am shocked and sad to learn that Alhaji Tafa Adebayo Balogun passed. I first thought that the news was a dream because, by association of friendship with my younger brother, Tafa was more or less a member of my family.

As a younger man, he was brilliant and diligent in his academic pursuits showing a promise that whatever he chose to become, teacher, civil servant, or profession, he would still have excelled. It was not surprising therefore that he was a perfect security manager and an excellent police officer. The prowess of his onslaught in bringing the armed terrorist known as Shina Rambo to justice cannot be easily forgotten. He rose to become the Nigerian Inspector General of Police.

The impact of his intervention in the development of our Ila Community is tremendous and we will forever remember him.

May His Souls Rest In Peace and may his family and members of our community in Ila and throughout Igbomina land be divinely consoled.

Chief Bisi Akande,
The Asiwaju of Ila Orangun.
