There was a pandemonium at Idi Omoh Mosque, Ilare, Ile Ife, Osun State on Thursday evening as scores of Oro worshipers attacked the Imam of the mosque and other Muslims during their evening prayer.

It was learnt that the ugly incident occured when the Muslims were about to observe their Salatul Asr around 4:30pm on Thursday.

According to an eye witness, Mr. Bashir AbdulAzeez, “We were about to observe our Salatul Asr when the Oro worshippers met us outside doing our ablution.

"They attacked us and told us to move away. Before we could explain anything, they have started to beat our Imam and Muslim sisters and brothers. They invaded the mosque and destroyed the Quran and other properties".

The Imam, Abdul-Lateef Adediran, AbdulWahab and five other Muslims have been receiving treatment at the Obafemi Awolowo University Teaching Hospital Complex, Ile-Ife.  

It was reported that there was Oro worship holding in Ile-Ife on Thursday.
