Kano State House of Assembly has set up a committee to investigate complaints of land racketeering in Abdullahi Bayero Juma’at Mosque, Fagge.
This resolution came barely 24 hours after a Kano based Islamic cleric, Tijjani Bala Kalarawi, announced his resignation as a member of the mosque’s trustee committee.
The House has also ordered all construction activities to stop in the mosque’s praying ground.
Kalarawi while announcing his resignation described the act as a sheer disregard for God’s worshipping domain.
He also noted that it became pertinent for him to resign his membership of the trustee committee because of the indiscriminate building and land allocation within the Juma’at mosque’s perimeter.
