MURIC MOURNS CHIEF IMAM OF LAGOS
The Chief Imam of Lagos, Shaykh Ibrahim Garba Akinola, died yesterday. He was eighty years old.
The Muslim Rights Concern (MURIC) commiserates with the governor of Lagos State, Mr. Akinwunmi Ambode, the Deputy President-General of the Nigerian Supreme Council for Islamic Affairs (NSCIA) and Saraki Adinni of Lagos, Alhaji (Chief) S. O. Babalola, the Baba Adinni of Lagos, Shaykh Hafeez Abu and the entire Muslim Ummah of Lagos State on the death of the Lagos Chief Imam.
The late Shaykh Ibrahim Garba Akinola was a great scholar, pious and widely travelled.
We pray that Almighty Allah overlooks his trespasses and reposes his soul in A-Jannah firdaus.
