Oyo CP brokers peace between Soun, Chief Imam Of Ogbomoso



Information reaching the OsunReporters News has it that the Commissioner of Police in Oyo State, Ayodele Sonubi has brokered peace between the Soun of Ogbomoso, Oba Afolabi Ghandi Olaoye and the Chief Imam of the town, Sheikh Taliat Yunus Olusina Ayilara.

According to reports, the reconciliation meeting which was summoned to calm the frayed nerves of the two sides, took place in Ogbomoso on Wednesday.

It should be recalled that there had been a strained relationship between the two which attracted external attention for the past few weeks

A source at the meeting which was still ongoing as at the time of filing this report, said the “two parties expressed their minds and the meeting was quite revealing and the outcome fruitful. Oba Ghandi had started taking the Imam as a son when some aggrieved Muslim leaders allegedly poisoning the Kabiyesi’s mind against Imam.

“Many things were known for the first time by the duo of monarch and the Imam today that were shockingly untrue. At last the two parties are ready to embrace peace.

”It’s quite disturbing to know that Muslims, particularly prominent Muslims and scholars were the ones interested in the removal of Imam and not the Oba Ghandi himself.

“Honestly, if you listened to the Kabiyesi, he wasn’t interested in removing Imam. The Muslim leaders may meet with the Kabiyesi very soon and normalcy will be restored. There is no point mentioning or showing faces of those behind the removal of Imam.

“There is need to make peace with everybody. The Imam has a lot to do and he has given assurances that he will normalize relationships with the king and everybody in Ogbomoso”, the source said.

At the time of filing this report, no official statement from both parties on the alleged peace meeting.
