Kano state governor Abdullahi Ganduje vowed to drag Governor Nyesom Wike to court over the alleged demolition of the Rainbow Town Central Mosque in Trans-Amadi area of Port Harcourt, Rivers State.
The Governor said he received the news of the demolition with shock while promising to seek legal redress against the Rivers State Government.
“As government, we have started touching appropriate quarters against the demolition. Kano State is known for peaceful coexistence between Muslims and Christians, we should, therefore, improve on that and remain calm and peaceful. People should live peacefully with one another. And I am assuring the general public that, all necessary action against this demolition will be taken through appropriate authorities” Ganduje said in a statement released on his behalf by his Chief Press Secretary, Abba Anwar.
The statement further added that the Kano State Governor would institute “legal action against this demolition of the Mosque as well contest it with appropriate authorities for redress”.
