Some Muslim youths, scholars and organisations in Ibadan, the Oyo State capital have reportedly staged a protest on Monday, following the alleged rape of a Muslim lady in one of the mosques in Ibadan.

The woman was in ‘Niqob’ Purdah when the incident occurred, a source told DAILY POST.

According to the report, a Muslim lady, who was in purdah, was allegedly raped inside a mosque at Iwo Road area of Ibadan on Sunday.

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”, he narrated.

Meanwhile, the concerned Muslims were led in the protest by an Ibadan-based Islamic cleric, Sheikh Amubieya.

Another source, however, told DAILY POST that the suspect had been arrested.

In his words, “The thug who raped a niqobite (Muslim lady 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”, he added.

The protesters have therefore, demanded for the prosecution of the suspect.
