– Two Imams Died In Quick Succession

The Government of the State of Osun on Tuesday announced the indefinite shut down of the Inisa Central Mosque in Odo-Otin Local Government Area of the State.

The government also banned any central congregation at the Mosque for Eid prayers.

In a public service announcement, the government adduced the inability of the Muslim Community of the town to peacefully install a new Imam for the mosque as the reason for the action.

The announcement read, “Governor Adegboyega Oyetola, as part of efforts to ensure security of lives and properties in that axis of the State, directed that the Central Mosque be shut indefinitely to forestall further religious or communal crisis.

“Already, the Mosque has recorded the death of two Imams in quick succession.

“Security operatives have been deployed to the town to enforce the closure and ban on Eid Prayers.

“This directive will be in place until reconciliatory process towards amicable resolution is concluded.”

The government urged members of the public, especially those in Inisa Township, to be guided by the directive.
