Crisis broke out in Iwo town in Osun State, as a soldier is reported to have beaten and battered the Chief Imam of the Federal Prison, Ile-Ife in Osun State, Malam Muritala Akanbi Tadese, just as the crises rocking the renowned Islamic Movement, Jama’at Ta’awunnil Muslimeen became messier.

The soldier, identified as Corporal Muritala Ibrahim, according to Channels Television in Osun State, is said to be serving in Maiduguri, Borno State.

It was gathered that he had come as bodyguard of the factional President of the organisation, Malam Daood Molaasan to the venue of a reconciliation meeting held at the Islahudeen Government Middle School, Oke-Afo in Iwo, Osun State.

A member of the sect, who prefered not to be mentioned said that an argument ensued between the two factions of the group during the meeting and the Soldier attacked the Chief Imam of the Ile-Ife Prison with his military belt and battered the Muslim cleric to the extent that the Imam was bleeding from the nose.

The meeting was deadlock, as a result of the incident and the matter was reported at the Divisional Police Headquarters in Iwo.

The Soldier was later arrested by the police and he was detained for interrogation while the injured Imam was rushed to the hospital for medical treatment.

When contacted, the Commissioner of Police in the state, Mr Fimihan Adeoye, confirmed the arrest of the soldier over the incident.

He said the matter was under investigation to establish whether he was really a military personnel and the reason for his action which eventually scuttled the efforts of the police to resolve the crises.

The Commissioner of Police, who spoke through the Spokesperson for the police in the state, Folasade Odoro, said “the Osun State Police Command was trying to resolve the crises rocking the Jama’at Ta’awunnil Muslimeen and we are very careful about this matter because religious matters are very sensitive.

“It was the police command that advised the parties to meet and resolve the crises amicably among themselves but we were surprised that someone who claimed to be a military personnel went there and assaulted one of the Muslim cleric who was part of the meeting.

“We are trying to establish the true identity of that Soldier so as to know whether he is a real soldier or not. If he is a real soldier, then, we shall inform the Army authority for necessary actions.”
