The standby generator of the Central Mosque at Shishagu, a suburb of Tamale has been stolen by suspected thieves who are believed to have capitalised on the forgetfulness of the caretaker to lock the Mosque following last Friday's prayer. The generator whose monetary value cannot immediately be established was donated to the mosque by Vice President, Alhaji Mahamud Bawumia, after pleas to his office for alternative power generating source as electricity supply challenges were affecting congregational activities.
Announcing the thievery to a packed congregation at today's Jumu'ah prayer, Imam of the mosque, Sheikh Muhammad Amin, condemned the criminals, saying their decision to steal power generator will impact negatively on prayers as the mosque will have no other means to generate power in case of any power failure. A visibly angry Sheikh Amin rained curses on the suspected thieves saying that their action was affront to the growth of Islam. He advised the criminals to bring back the generator or face the wrath of Allah.
