As the eighth-day Fidau prayer for former Governor Abiola Ajimobi of Oyo State was held in Ibadan yesterday, an Islamic Cleric, Sheik Muideen Ajani Bello, has said the widow of the deceased, Mrs Florence Ajimobi will have to observe the mandatory 130 days in widowhood.
This came just as the cleric disclosed that all those who are now praising the deceased after his death but didn’t do so when alive would be punished. Sheik Bello said this during the eighth-day prayer which was offered at the Oluyole residence of Late Ajimobi.
There was strict adherence to COVID-19 protocols as few people were granted entry into the venue of the prayer. Ajimobi did so well when he was alive. He served well. He built mosques for Almighty Allah.
Life is vanity. When we were putting his corpse in the graveyard, I asked myself, “is it not the corpse of the person that built this palatial building we lowering into the grave?” Sheik Bello asked.
To the widow of the deceased (Ajimobi), he said she would have to observe the mandatory 130 days in widowhood.
