The ovation was loud when the prize was presented to the six-year-old boy as many were struggling to take a picture with him.

Speaking earlier, the founder of the NGO, Alhaji Mobolaji Ogunlende, said the motive behind Quran recitation competition was to inculcate the fear of Allah and the study of Qur’an in youths.

The Chairman of the event, Alhaji Bode Shokunbi, urged Muslims to send their children to Quranic schools. (NAN)
