SHOCKING! The corpse of a 47-year-old Muslim, Salami Adekunle, who was killed by lightening in Oro, lrepodun Local Government Area of Kwara, was on Friday rejected by the management of the llorin Muslim Cemetery. Dr Abubakar Aliagan, the Coordinator in charge of the cemetery, disclosed this in an interview with NAN in llorin.

According to him, the cemetery management unanimously rejected the burial of the deceased, a civil servant, following an instruction that the corpse should not undergo the normal Islamic prayers and bath.

Aliagan said while the deceased was described as a practising Muslim during his life time, Muslims in his vicinity refused to accept that his death was an act of God.

He said the performance of traditional rituals on Adekunle’s corpse after his death and the instructions warning against conducting Islamic rites on it was unacceptable to the management of the cemetery.

“If the late Salami will sleep in our Muslim cemetery, we have to do it in line with lslamic rites,’’ Aliagan said.

NAN recalls that Adekunle was on Thursday struck to death by lightening during a downpour. The deceased, who hails from lnisa in Osun, was until his death a staff of the Registry Department at the Kwara College of Education, Oro.

The Public Relations Officer of the institution, Mr Adesola Adewoye, said the family of the deceased would meet and decide on the next line of action to take on the burial arrangement.
