Ondo State Governor Oluwarotimi Akeredolu has ordered the closure of Ikare Central Mosque over lingering leadership tussle.

Last week, the Ikare Muslim Council sacked the Chief Imam of the mosque, Sheikh Abubakar Muhammed Abbas, after its meeting held on October 9.

But the League of Imams and Alfas rejected the sacking.

However, Sheikh Abbas led last Friday’sjumat service under heavy security.

Information and Orientation Commissioner Mrs. Bamidele Ademola-Olateju announced the closure of the mosque at a media briefing after the state executive council meeting.

She said the closure of the mosque was among far-reaching decisions on important issues in the state.
