The Governor who spoke after the signing of the 2016 appropriation bill stated that his government has no intention to trample with the right of any citizen but warned that public places should not be turned to other purposes.

He also stressed that his administration will not temper with anybody’s rights to worship but also will not compromised that with the security of the others.

 

It could be noted that Heavily armed security agents on Wednesday, halted a procession by members of the Islamic Movement in Nigeria, in Katsina.

 

Daily Trust reports that members of the sect had

gathered at the Central Mosque area to begin the

procession at about 8am when armed security

personnel moved in to disperse them.

 

The security agents then moved in a convoy round the

main streets of the town. The foiled Sayyada Zahara Maulud procession is an annual event by the movement to commemorate the birth of the prophet’s daughter, Fatima.

 

The leader of the movement in Katsina, Shiek Yakubu

Yahaya, recalled that about 10 vehicles full of armed

security personnel arrived the venue, confiscating

banners and flags of the sect which sent fears among

followers.

 

Confirming the development, Shiites’ spokesman,

Ibrahim Musa, said on noticing the number of soldiers

that surrounded the main Juma’at mosque where the

procession was to take off, the movement relocated

to prevent any confrontation.
