Osun shut Inisa central mosque, bans congregational activities

Osun State Government on Tuesday shut Central Mosque, Inisa in Odo-Otin local Osun area of the state.

This, according to a statement signed by the Deputy Chief of Staff to Osun State Governor, Abdullahi Binuyo, was to avert escalation of crisis due to the inability of the Muslim community to install an acceptable Chief Immam in the town.

Vanguard had reported that a palace chief in the town and a former Commissioner for Agriculture in Lagos State, Chief Enoch Ajiboso slumped last December while trying to settle the rift.

The state government, according to the statement, also banned all congregational activities in the mosque, including the Eid prayer until the issue is resolved amicably.
