According to a statement issued by the Chief Press Secretary, CPS, to the governor, Rafiu Ajakaye, muslims were at the Janazzah held at the Ilorin Muslim Burial Ground on Thursday, reminded of the need to work hard in accordance with the dictates of Islam in order to be rewarded accordingly in the grave.

Ajakaye quoted an Islamic Cleric, Alhaji Abdulraheem Oniwasi, who presided over the Janazzah, as saying that the grave was no respecter of any personality on the surface of the earth except for those who kept to the commandment of God. 

Oniwasi urged Muslims to always be conscious and carry out their duties to Allah to earn God's favour on the day of judgment. 

In their separate prayers, Professor Hamzat Abdulraheem of Kwara State University and Dr. Mohammed Ghali of the University of Ilorin prayed Allah to forgive the shortcomings of the deceased and make Aljanah fridaus his final abode.
