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 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.
