Gathering Ban: Mosques in Ibadan Remain Compliant
Many mosques in Ibadan have continued to comply with Oyo state government’s ban on religious gatherings of more than ten people to curb the spread of the Coronavirus.
All mosques at Aba-Panu and Kuola, Apata were not opened for Jumat services.
It was the same situation at Odua Central Mosque, Dugbe and Lebanon Street Mosque, Ogunpa as they were under lock.
It was not a different story as mosques at Omilabu and Idi-Omo along Arulogun Road, off Ojoo were not open as well.
At Oluyole Extension Central Mosque, a banner was placed outside which reads “No Jumat Service until further notice”.
Similarly, Police Command Central Mosque, Eleyele and Idi Ishin mosque, Jericho were devoid of human movement as everywhere was silent.
Some Muslims who spoke with Radio Nigeria said they observed 4 rakaat of Suhr prayer at home in place of the 2 Rakaat of Jumat prayer as directed by their leaders.
