The Grand Imaam of Osun State and President, League of Imaams and Alfas, Sheikh Musa Animasahun has instructed that all central mosques in the State suspend Jumaat prayers indefinitely.
In a statement made available to AMILOADED in OSOGBO on Friday, the Grand Imaam observed that the step became necessary in view of the spread of the dreaded Coronavirus.
He said, although the virus was yet to be witnessed in the state, there was a need for precautionary measures to be taken.
Sheikh Animashaun also added that the directive took immediate effect in line with the State Government’s instruction that all public gatherings be suspended as a check against the pandemic.
The Chief Imaam therefore enjoined all Imaams of central mosques to adhere to this and inform the congregation appropriately.
