A man, identified as Salam Ayodeji has been declared wanted by the Kwara State Police Commissioner, Ebunoluwarotimi Adelesi, over allegations that he threatened Isese adherents in Ilorin, the state capital.
The suspect was reported to have stormed the shop of a female Isese adherent in Ilorin, to not only bully her but also threaten to wreak havoc should she not leave town in eight days.
In a now viral video posted on X (formerly Twitter), Ayodeji issued an eight-day ultimatum to the electronics seller to evacuate the building where she transacted business.
He said in Yoruba, “Do women sell electronics?” Ayodeji asked, to which his cohorts responded, “We have never heard of such.”
The cleric continued saying, “We have told you what we want; leave the town. We do not allow Isese people in our town.”
Recall the Muslim cleric in his rant on Sunday also claimed to have the backing of the police commissioner.
In a meeting with Ayodeji’s family, on Monday, Adelesi asked the family to produce the suspect latest Wednesday for the alleged offence of terrorism and defamation against the police.
The police boss also berated the family for what she described as “the poor training of their son”.
“Is it because Tajudeen’s wife is from Osun State? Does that mean she’s a traditionalist? Or are there no Muslims in Osun State”, the enraged CP queried.
The commissioner who also spoke with the Alaran family, renters to the Isese adherents who were evicted per Ayodeji’s threats, berated them for obliging the suspect.
Ayodeji responding to the police commissioner said they had unsuccessfully tried to locate their son, whose phone line had remained unreachable for days now.
Tajudeen, husband to the Isese lady, who was bullied and threatened by Ayodeji and his cohorts, said the suspect’s family had asked for his forgiveness and he had given it.
