OSUN GOVERNMENT SHUTS DOWN MOSQUE, BANS CENTRAL EID PRAYERS

Governor Gboyega Oyetola

The Inisha Town Central Mosque in Odo-Otin Local Government Area of Osun State was on Tuesday shut down by the State Government. The closure of the religious institution follows a directive from the state Governor, Isiak Gboyega Oyetola over a protracted leadership tussle in the mosque.

"The Government of the State of Osun hereby announces its decision to shut down indefinitely Inisha Town Central Mosque in Odo-Otin Local Government Area of the State. The government also banned any central congregation at the Mosque for Eid prayers.

This follows the inability of the Muslim Community of the town to peacefully instal a new Imam for the mosque.

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.

Members of the public are advised to be guided by this directive", the statement read.
