Chairman of Oyo State Muslim Community, Alhaji Ishaq Kunle Sanni says Senator Abiola Ajimobi, former governor of Oyo State was committed to mother earth around 10am on Sunday.
“The 12noon announced was a decore to prevent a mammoth crowd. The janazah was not at Ajimobi Mosque as earlier announced for the same reason,” he told The Shield Online through a WhatsApp message, shortly after the burial in Ibadan.
According to him, “Both the janazah prayer and burial has just been concluded in the oluyole estate residence of the late Ishaq Ajimobi. The prayer was led by the Chief Imam of Ibadan Sheikh Abdul Ganiyu Agbotomokekere around 10am.
” The 12noon announced was a decore to prevent a mammoth crowd. The janazah was not at Ajimobi Mosque as earlier announced for the same reason. Very few people including all the children and the widow witnessed the burial.
He further stated that ” The lecture and special prayer for the deceased would start at 12noon at Ajimobi Mosque.”
He disclosed that “As I am writing thousands are outside the Mosque awaiting the body that is already six feet below. They are oblivious of the fact that the janazah had been concluded.
” Alh Muyideen Ajani Bello is scheduled to give the sermon while other Imams including the Imam of Ibadan Ansarudeen Dr Bashir Olanrewaju would pray for the repose of the soul of Alhaj Ishaq Abiola Ajimobi,” praying that “May Allah bless his soul.”
