Muslim youths, scholars, and organisations in Ibadan, Oyo State, have protested over the alleged rape of a Muslim lady in one of the mosques in Ibadan.
The woman, fully covered in a “Niqob” Purdah, was raped inside a mosque at the Iwo Road area of Ibadan on Sunday, Jan. 29.
The suspect is said to be the son of a road transport worker.
Following the incident, concerned Muslim leaders held a demonstration march on Monday, Jan. 30 to demand the prosecution of the suspect.
A source said, “An unfortunate incident happened on Sunday in Ibadan, when the son of a road transport union sneaked into a mosque and raped a niqobite.
“This then prompted the concerned Muslim leaders to stage the protest on Monday.”
The concerned Muslims were led in the protest by an Ibadan-based Islamic cleric, Sheikh Amubieya.
The suspect has been arrested.
A source told DailyPost, “The thug who raped a niqobite (Muslim woman in veil) has been identified as Idris, also known as Kesari.
“He is the son of a union leader known as Al-Majiri. He was arrested by the police and the case has now been transferred to the State CID.”
