Ogbomoso Muslim Community disowns Sheu Bulala, cleric alleged of kidnap and rape
Ogbomoso Muslim Community has disclaimed Sheikh Olamilekan Bulala who was accused of kidnapping and raping a woman in the community.
Sheikh Olamilekan Bulala was reported to have kidnapped a married woman, Mrs. Adegbola Khadijat in Ogbomoso and held her hostage for 14 days.
According to the report, the cleric beat and raped her for two weeks and even invited two of his friends, Sheikh Omo-Oba and Sheikh Kaosara to commit the alleged offence with him.
However, the lmam-in-Council and other stakeholders have said that though the man was in Ogbomoso sometimes ago for a Maloud organized by an Islamic scholar popularly known as Olongini adding that Bulala was an Offa man and never stayed in Ogbomoso beyond one day.
In an interview with the Chief Imam of Ogbomosoland Sheikh (Dr) Yekeen Ashafa Adegboyega Sunusi, it was disclosed that a painstaking investigation was embarked upon to ascertain whether the suspected kidnapper was an indigene of Ogbomoso but that he was not found not to be and that he didn’t stay more than a day in the town when he attended the maloud programme.
The Chief Imam therefore admonished Islamic clerics in Ogbomoso to stick to the word of Allah and Sunnah of Prophet Muhammed and to eschew all social vices that could tarnish their image and reputation noting that nobody can dent and tarnish the image of Islam.
Also an Islamic scholar, Sheik Qossim Olaosebikan in a chat said, “We are ready to work with the security agencies on the matter because we won’t tolerate anything that will bring disrepute to Islam and our sheiks Ogbomoso.”
