Some northern youths under the aegis of Coalition of Northern Youth Groups on Tuesday said the Rivers State Governor Nyesom Wike never demolished any mosque at the Trans-Amadi area of Port Harcourt as being alleged in some quarters.

According to the Coalition, they investigated the alleged demolition and found that that the only properties demolished in the area, were illegal structures.

Addressing a press conference in Kaduna on Tuesday, Convener of the group, Mohammed Sani, claimed political merchants were working to cause political tension and disaffection among Nigerians.

Sani, therefore, cautioned against such an act, noting that nothing must be done to cause religious disharmony among Nigerians.

The Convener said, “Coalition of Northern Youth Groups has observed with patriotic disenchantment the worrisome trend of some politicians capitalising on falsehood to fan the furnace of ethnic, religious or regional division just for self-serving and fiendish gains while endangering the collective goodwill and peace.
