THE Obafemi Awolowo University Muslim Graduates Association (UNIFEMGA) has raised the alarm over threat to peace on its alma mata following the activities of illegal Muslim group on OAU campus.

In a petition letter signed by its National President, Engr. Abdulwaheed Odeyimka warned on the dire consequences of allowing such dreaded muslim group using the name of MSSN to operate on campus.

The two-page petition was addressed to the Acting Vice Chancellor of the University and copied to the Minister of Education as well as the Chancellor and Pro Chancellor of  Obafemi Awolowo University.

Others copied were the Secretary-General, Nigeria Supreme Council for Islamic Affairs (NSCIA), Chairman and Members, Board of Trustees, MSSN and its National President as well as the security agencies.

Odeyimka  who recalled the strategic partner with the University in its pursuit of excellence as a tertiary institution, said it was  concerned about untoward development in the institution that they care so much about.

“We are greatly disturbed by developments in the university in the last few weeks regarding a group of Muslim students trying to usurp the identity of MSSN-OAU.”, he said.

It was surprising to us that a similar successful Jihad Week programme authorised by the school authorities were carried out a week earlier by the registered MSSN on campus.

“We were told that the university authorities convened a meeting of OAUMC, MSSN-OAU and the leadership of the recalcitrant group where the authorities declared that the recalcitrant group should not go ahead with their planned IAP.
“To our dismay, we learnt that the recalcitrant group has held its planned programme for three consecutive days .”
