Several individuals, Muslim communities and organisations have berated the PDP led government in Rivers State over the alleged demolition of Trans-Amadi Central Mosque in Port Harcourt.

Speaking on how the mosque was demolished, the chairman of the mosque, Alhaji Abdullahi Musa Tabaco, said the mosque was demolished on August 20 by government officials. He also said the officials came with armed policemen, pulled down the fence and the foundation of the mosque which had gone up to DPC level, citing non-compliance with the state urban development laws.

In a reaction to the incident, the imam of the mosque, Alhaji Haroon Muhammed, also said:

“This is the most populated mosque. Muslims all over the world can see what has happened to a mosque that is duly approved by the state government. We have been harassed three times now – once on the 29th of last month,then on August 16 and 20 without any formal notice.”
