The Nation

The incident happened on Sunday at Kamorudeen Central Mosque in the Olu-Ode Aranyin area.

The mosque was in a prayer session when the clash took place.

A source said the masquerader and its followers were passing by the mosque when an altercation ensued between them.

The altercation led to a brawl and gunshots were heard at the mosque which led to the death of one person with 14 persons injured.

Our correspondent who visited the mosque observed that the canopy and plastic chairs the worshippers used were in disarray, and there were bloodstains on the floor.

At a media briefing, the Coalition of Muslim Right Activists (COMRAN) demanded the arrest of the masquerader and its adherents.

Chief Imam of Kamorudeen Central Mosque, Qosim Yusuf said “three hours into the prayer there was a commotion around the mosque. It is unfortunate that while we were praying for peace, we became targets of attack by the masquerade worshippers.
