The Monsurat Ipesa-Balogun Central Mosque, otherwise called Masjid Monsurat Ipesa-Balogun, will be officially opened for worshippers today, October 22, 2021.

The mosque is located on Ogunderu Eletu Street, Awoyaya, Ibeju-Lekki Council, Lagos.

Former Chairman of Oshodi-Isolo Local Government Area, Hon Afeez Ipesa-Balogun in a statement said the mosque project was started by his late wife, Alhaja Monsurat Ipesa-Balogun, a pharmacist, before her death on March 15, 2019, in the United States.

According to him, her wish before she passed on is to ensure the completion of the mosque in earnest.

Ipesa-Balogun, also a Lagos State former lawmaker, thanked family members and friends for ensuring the late Monsurat’s wish came to fruition.

Activities scheduled for the opening of the mosque include Special Jumat Service, Tour of the Mosque, Special Prayer for the late Ipesa-Balogun and her family members.

The late mother of four worked at Kroger Food Stores in Castleway, Indianapolis, United States.
