The leader of the Niger Delta People’s Volunteer Force, Asari Dokubo, has condemned the lies of the governor of Rivers State, Nyesom Wike, over the demolition of a mosque in the state.
Mr Asari Dokubo said the governor actually demolished the mosque as he personally worships in the mosque also.
The Rivers State Governor Nyesom Wike has denied demolishing the Trans-Amadi Central Mosque in Port Harcourt after coming under serious criticism from many stakeholders.
The ex- Niger Delta militant leader described the governor’s action as dastardly in a trending video on social media.
He said the governor was lying as there was an existing mosque at Trans-Amadi, which was demolished.
According to him,“I am a member of the congregation of the Trans Amadi Central Mosque. That is where I pray with my family.
“I alone have 21 children, but I live with 59 children of other people. The bulk of them prays”.
“Wike claiming that there was no mosque, is a lie. He is lying and you know it, Wike you are lying. If there was no mosque why did you go there? We legally acquired the land for the mosque from Dr Sotonye Amadi,’’ said Dokubo.
“The Christian group acquired their own part of the land and built their own churches, but he did not demolish their churches.
“Why did you and your brother, Rotimi Amaechi, singled out our mosque to demolish and to prevent us from building. The person who acquired the land for the mosque, is an Okrika Ijaw man and this land was acquired legally from Chief Dr Edward Sotonye Amadi.
“Why is this mosque a problem to you? The first signatory to this agreement for the transfer of title like I said, was an Okrika Muslim, Alhaji Ali Ibiorika. I was a member of the congregation,” Mr Dokubo added.
Asari Dokubo also countered the governor that Rivers is not a Christian state, saying Muslims are law-abiding citizens in the state.
”Islam is bigger than you and there is nothing you can do about it,” he added.
