Osun State Governor, Mr. Adegboyega Oyetola has ordered the indefinite closure of Inisha Town Central Mosque in Odo-Otin Local Government Area of the State to forestall further religious or communal crisis.
Also, the governor banned any central congregation at the mosque for Eid prayers.
The state government explained that the decision to shut down the mosque follows the inability of the Muslim community of the town to peacefully install a new Imam for the mosque.
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.
The directive was placed until reconciliatory process towards amicable resolution is concluded.
