The Osun State Government on Tuesday shut down Inisha Town Central Mosque in Odo-Otin Local Government Area of the State indefinitely.
The government also banned any central congregation at the Mosque for Eid prayers.
This was revealed to our correspondent in a statement signed by Prince Abdullah Adeyanju Binuyo, Deputy Chief of Staff to the Governor.
He said: “Governor Adegboyega Oyetola, as part of efforts to ensure security of lives and properties in that axis of the State, 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 to 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.
“Members of the public are advised to be guided by this directive.”
