The Rivers State Islamic Leader and Vice President General Rivers State Council for Islamic Affairs, Alhaji Nasir Uhor has debunked the alleged demolition of a mosque by the state government.
This was revealed in a radio programme on August 31 when hr stated thats even though the whole world is a Mosque in Islam, but confirmed that there was no physical structure of a mosque on the disputed land in Rainbow Town in Port Harcourt.
“The insinuation that there is a 10-storey building is not true”, he said.
Recounting how the Rivers State government under Rotimi Amaechi stopped work at the location on two occasions, Nasir Uhor explained that the leadership of the Muslim community in Rivers state was not in any way responsible for the rumors circulating about the disputed land in Rainbow town.
After admitting that a State High Court delivered a judgement that the disputed land belongs to Rivers Government, the leader however revealed that one Late Chief Amadi who sold the land to them claimed that he inherited it.
Also explaining that though Rivers State is a Christian dominated state, Uhor said it shouldn’t be used to promote enmity and hatred.
He urged the state government to embrace dialogue across all the affected quarters.
