Arewa group flags off late famous armed robbery hunter, Ali Kwara’s charity project

The Arewa Youth Consultative Council (AYCC), Bauchi State Chapter has flagged off a charity project to immortalize the late famous armed robbery hunter, Ali Kwara.

The first phase of the project features the distribution of school uniforms to 50 orphans and vulnerable pupils across the 20 Local Government Areas (LGAs), of Bauchi State.

Flagging off the exercise at the conference hall of Katagum Local Government Secretariat in Azare, the state Coordinator of AYCC, Ambassador Usama Ibrahim Aliyu said the project is tagged “Ali Kwara Charity  Project” to provide succour to the orphans and the less privileged in the society.

Usama said “as earlier pledged during the launching of a magazine, the funds realised will be used in helping the orphans, poor and the needy as in line with the ideas of late Ali Kwara.

“We are making history, we didn’t realise huge amounts that will be enough to build a mosque or hospital like it’s in the ideas of the late legend, but we realized a token that will bring succour to the needy through the provision of school uniforms.

“The project will feature distribution of school uniforms to 50 students (orphans) in each local government across Bauchi State, construction of water boreholes in some identified areas and other projects which are in line with the ideas of late Kwara”.

He said the distribution of school uniforms will start with Katagum Local government then to Itas/Gadau Local government, and others will follow “by the grace of God”.

Usama said the orphans and the needy were identified by the communities and school headteachers.

He urged the people who are yet to redeem their pledges to the association to do so in the best interest of unity and development of the society and solicited more support and prayers in order to succeed.

Uniforms were distributed to 50 pupils of Islamic Civilization School Azare during the flag off.

In their separate remarks at the occasion, Head of Correctional Center Azare, Alhaji Musa and Sheikh GwaniTsoma, thanked the AYCC for their kind gesture and advised the beneficiaries to make the best use of the uniforms.

They appealed to the government, philanthropists and other organisations to emulate AYCC for the social wellbeing of society. reports that late Ali Kwara was from Azare, Katagum Local Government Area (LGA), of Bauchi State. When he was alive, he specialised in fighting criminals voluntarily. Singlehandedly, he arrested kidnappers and presented them to the agents of the law.

Apart from being a career hunter who fought the most dangerous animals back-to-back, he was a philanthropist, friendly, approachable and responsive.
