Seven months after the Executive Governor of Oyo State, Engr. Seyi Makinde marked the Olore Mosque for demolition, the state government have reopened the mosque.

The mosque, which was used as an ‘illegal’ correction centre, was marked for demolition on the 6th of November, 2019, after the Governor visited the facility.

OYOINSIGHT.COM recalls that the state police command had in an operation led by CP Shina Olukolu busted the alleged detention facility where the inmates were rescued.



The operation had led to the arrest of five persons, including one of the operators of the centre identified as Ismail Olore.

Twenty-two out of the over two hundred inmates freed by security agencies were hospitalized in 2019 for immediate treatment.

However, subsequent reports explained that majority of the inmates were taken to the correction centre for rehabilitation by their parents willingly.

A video by Zainu TV, on Saturday, showed that the Mosque had now been reopened by the government.
