Osun shuts mosque after two Imams involved in leadership tussle die mysteriously

Following the mysterious death of two Imams involved in the leadership tussle of Inisa Central Mosque in Odo-Otin Local Government Area of Osun State, the state government has closed down the mosque.

The government also banned any congregation prayer at the Central Mosque and the Eid Praying Ground in the town.

Deputy Chief of Staff to the Governor, Prince Abdullah Adeyanju Binuyo, in a statement on Tuesday, said the central mosque would remain shut indefinitely.

Binuyo said the decision became necessary following the inability of the Muslim community of the town to peacefully instal a new Imam for the mosque.

The statement read, “As part of efforts to ensure the security of lives and properties in that axis of the State, Governor Adegboyega Oyetola 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 in 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.”
