The Islamic Mission for Africa (IMA), Abeokuta, Ogun State has offered a life scholarship to baby Abdul-Wahab Irawo, born with a sealed copy of the Holy Qur’an in a church in Ijeshatedo area of Lagos State on May 7, 2012.
The President of the mission, H.E. Judge Bola Ajibola made this offer during a scheduled visit of the organisation to the baby’s parents in Lagos.
Ajibola, the former Justice Minister pledged on behalf of IMA a life education sponsorship of the miracle baby from crèche to the university level, noting that “we have come to witness the miracle and mercy of God through this baby”.
