Resident muslim in Ekiti state protest over the alleged take over of a parcel of land belonging to Ola Oluwa Muslim Grammar School, Ado- Ekiti, the state capital.

The protesters marched the street, singing Islamic songs and chanted Allahu Akbar (God is the greatest) as the peaceful procession moved from the Central Mosque at Oja Oba to Ilawe Road, where the school established in 1970, was located.

Their leader, Alhaji Azeez Ibiyemi, said the alleged land grab was embarrassing and provocative to the Muslim community, which it said has a Certificate of Occupancy.

They described the alleged seizure of the land by the Ekiti State  government as “injustice and unlawful”, asking Governor Ayo Fayose not to tamper with the land.
The protesters are angry that the governor did not consult them before mobilising officials of the Ministry of Works to the land, which had been allegedly earmarked for a housing estate and a hotel.

They gathered at the Ado-Ekiti Central Mosque at 7am and marched to the land, chasing out the officials.

He said about 65 hectares were acquired by Muslims on that portion, where schools were built by the community before the government took them over.
