Police speak on Egungun worshipers’ attack on Muslims in Osun, promise diligent investigation

Adekunle Oba, Osogbo

The Osun State Commissioner of Police, Olawale Olokode, has promised a proper investigation into last Sunday’s attack on some Muslim faithfuls at Kamorudeen Society Central Mosque in Osogbo, the state capital, will be carried out.

Olokola said there has not been any arrest so far while speaking on the current affairs program, Frank Talk in Osogbo on Tuesday.

He assured members of the public to stay calm and trust police investigation.

Recall that one person, Moshood Salawudeen, was shot dead while about 12 persons, including children, sustained gunshot injuries when masquerade worshipers attacked some Muslims on Sunday.

A Muslim rights activist, Abdulganiy Sahid, on behalf of the Qamarudeen Society of Nigeria, on Monday asked for the immediate arrest and prosecution of one Chief Kayode Idowu Esuleke and others who allegedly participated in the attack.

He said this at a press conference in Osogbo while asking the government to ensure proper investigation into the incident.
