The Jama’atu Ta’awun Muslimeen Society of Nigeria has described as ‘misleading’, the statement credited to the palace of the Oluwo of Iwoland, Oba Abdulrasheed Adewale Akanbi, that Sheikh Daood Malaasan was the founder of Ta’awun Society.

The Muslim society refuted the claim in a press statement, signed by its General Secretary, Dr. Tajudeen Abefe Oladejo, and made available to CityMirrorNews, in Osogbo, on Tuesday.

Recall that the Oluwo of Iwo, had through a statement issued by his Press Secretary, Alli Ibrahim described Daood Malaasan as the founder of Jama’atu Ta’awun Muslimeen Society of Nigeria.

The group, in the statement, noted that the Jama’atu Ta’awun Muslimeen Society was founded in “1994 under the able wisdom of about 7 members led by Mr. Shafi’i Abdul Azeez Bello now Dr. Shafi’i Abdul Azeez Bello”.

The statement read, “Attention of the Founders of the Jama’atu Ta’awun Muslimeen have been hurriedly drawn to a press release credited to the Oluwo Press Secretary, one Alli Ibrahim on Friday 29th October, 2021 and reported by the Vanguard News Nigeria to the effect that Daood Malaasan was the founder of Ta’awun Society.

“Without prejudice to the suit pending at the Appeal Court over the leadership tussle of the Society, members of the general public are hereby urged to ignore such a piece of information as same is not only unfortunate but also grossly misleading and bereft of any scintilla of the truth with all senses of sincerity.

“To set the record straight, the Jama’atu Ta’awun Muslimeen Society of Nigeria was founded sometime in 1994 under the able wisdom of about 7 members led by Mr. Shafi’i Abdul Azeez Bello now Dr. Shafi’i Abdul Azeez Bello.

“It is therefore very important to call attention of the people connected with the current crises emanating from installation of a certain title to the fact that the Society would always want to be seen as peace-loving and law abiding organization whose name and reputation should always be preserved for whatever it takes.

“The Society would not want her name dragged into the crises and therefore appeal to the general public to tread with caution in bringing the name of the society into activities not connected with her aims and objectives.”
