There is an imminent religious crisis in Osun State, as Ededimeji Muslim Community and Redeemer’s University are at loggerheads over parcels of land in Ede.

The Muslim community, at a press conference in Osogbo, the capital of Osun State on Tuesday, accused the faith-based university of allegedly encroaching 611 acres belonging to the community.

Mr. Wasiu AbdulAzeez, who spoke on behalf of 18 families that make up the community warned against provoking religious crisis in the town.

He also accused the monarch of the town, Oba Muniru Adesola Lawal of connivance with the university, saying his claim that the native law and traditions of Edeland accorded him the right on any land is untrue.

He said, “Despite the incessant threats and intimidations from the hands of RCCG, we have remained persistently focused to pursue the case.

“Since April 2012, the Redeemer’s University management have continued to unleash terror on the innocent occupiers of the land who refused to be intimidated into submitting their lands.

“The horrible scene of mobilising over a hundred thugs and hoodlums with powerful arms and earth moving equipment (bulldozer) on Wednesday March 6, 2019 to raze down the entire Oloya village, destroying Mosque, homesteads and plantation with impunity was most unfortunate, as property worth over N500million have been destroyed,” he said.

The community noted that intervention of the former Governor Rauf Aregbesola did not yield any result.

It, therefore, demanded for justice, which according to them must include paying damages on the lost property
