They poured boiling vegetable oil on three members of the mosque, two of which were admitted at Olabisi Onabanjo University Teaching Hospital, OOUTH, whom were attacked on their way back from Iperu police station , where they had gone to report the attack.

He said the two of them were rejected by two hospitals before they were later referred to OOUTH where they were receiving treatment.
He said, “It was on Tuesday, we were not even at the scene when the incident happened but we were informed that our mosque had been attacked, we quickly rushed there only to find out that the mosque was destroyed.
“We were told that some members of the mosque had gone to the police station to report the case, we also took an Okada to the police station but on getting their, we were told our members had left”.
We were on our way back from the station when they waylaid us and poured boiling vegetable oil from a bean cake seller on us. Two of us were rejected by two hospitals before we later got here.”
