”It’s Wrong for Any Muslim Group to Threaten and Disrespect Us”- Traditionalists Warn ‘Muslim Extremists

Muslim extremists in Ilorin, Kwara state have been ordered to cease intimidating and inciting their followers, according to the umbrella organization for all indigenous African faiths, the Ancient Religion Societies of African Descendants International Council (ARSADIC).

The council issued this declaration in response to reports that one of its members, Omolara Ajesekemi, an Osun priestess and follower, had been threatened by some Muslims because of her religion.

Religious fundamentalism must not be promoted in any way or anywhere in the country, said ARSADIC President Aare (Dr) Ifagbenusola Atanda in a statement made available to newsmen in Osogbo on Monday.

Atanda, who is also known as Asiwaju Awo Agbaye, said that it was improper for the Majlisu Shabab li Ulamahu Society and Abdulazeez Arowona, the spokesman for the emir of Ilorin, to intimidate the priestess and prevent her from conducting the Isese celebration in the town.
