The participants cycled through Ayetoro, Igbona, Ajegunle, Freedom Park to Orita Olaiya, MDS, Station Road, Oja Oba, Atelewo, Sabo, Orita Sabo and finally arrived at the Ahmadiyya Junction.
The citizens of Osogbo were stunned at the conduct of the exercise as passers-by and traders waved at the riders and joined them in praising Allah.
Osun State Missionary, Maulvi Mubarak Bello and Osun State Qaid, Bro Muhammadu Qasim Awwal, during their separate interviews with the press, explained that “Ride For Peace” is not only a means adopted by Ahmadiyya Muslim Jama’at to inform the world that Islam is a message of peace but it is also an exercise that keeps man healthy and fit.
The riders distributed over 1000 leaflets tagged “This is Islam” and “What is Ahmadiyya” to members of the public. The event ended peacefully with escorts from the Nigerian Police Force.
