Alleged Mosque Demolition: Ganduje Threatens to Sue Wike


The Kano State Governor Abdullahi Umar Ganduje has threatened to sue his Rivers State counterpart Nyesom Wike, over demolition of a mosque in Port Harcourt.

Ganduje, in a press statement issued by his Media Aide, Alhaji Abba Anwar, said the development was a sad one and assured that appropriate actions will be taken.

He said, “We received this information with high degree of shock and I am assuring the general public that all necessary action against this demolition will be taken through appropriate authorities’’.

“Kano State is known for peaceful coexistence between Muslims and Christians; we should therefore improve on that and remain calm and peaceful. People should please live peacefully with one another,” he added.

The governor called on all residents of the state to remain calm and go about their normal business.

Wike had earlier denied ordering demolition of a mosque in the Trans Amadi layout of Port Harcourt, the state capital. He said news of the demolition was being spread by detractors who want to cause trouble in the state. He explained that the government only stopped the erection of a building in a site without approval.
