Asari Dokubo, Ex-Niger Delta militant leader, has described the Rivers Governor, Nyesom Wike, as a liar, following his denial of demolishing a mosque in Port Harcourt.

He alleged that Wike and the Minister of Transportation, Rotimi Amaechi had hitherto singled out the mosque for demolition.

Wike was accused of ordering the demolition of a mosque in Port Harcourt, the Rivers State capital.

The governor, in spite of that, denied the allegation raised by the Muslim Rights Concern, MURIC, saying there was no building on the site at the time of the clearance exercise.

Reacting to Wike’s denial, Asari warned the governor that Islam was bigger than him, despite demolishing the said mosque.

In a Facebook video, Asari stayed that there was nothing Wike can do to stop Muslims in the state from practicing their religion.

He explained that he and his family worshipped at the mosque located at Trans-Amadi in Port Harcourt and that the property was legally acquired.

As stated by Asari: “It is most unfortunate that fickle-minded persons will claim that a mosque was demolished at this place, when no mosque existed here. The story was concocted by mischief makers to score cheap points.

“I have been down for eight days which makes it difficult for me to talk on the issues that are trending now; one of the issues is concerning the dastardly act carried out by the governor of Rivers state, Nyesom Wike, in demolishing my mosque.

”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 and I live with 59 other children.

“They are on holiday. The bulk of them pray. Fortunately, they are in my village, Ogbama with me.

” The debate continues to drag on. Wike claiming there was no mosque; I will say that is a lie. He is lying. And you know, Wike you are lying. if there is no mosque why did you go there? We legally acquired the land for the mosque like other groups there. we acquired it from Dr Sotonye Amadi; a christian group acquired part of that land and they have built their churches, why did you and your brother, Rotimi Amaechi single out our mosque to demolish and to prevent us from building?
