The National Assembly Mosque Zone E, Apo Legislators’ Quarters, Gudu District Abuja, has sacked Imam Nuru Khalid.
OSUN DEFENDER gathered that Nuru Khalid had on Friday last week, in Abuja, during a sermon, flayed the government over its failure to tame the escalating insecurity and killings in the country.
The mosque committee suspended the Sheik afterwards for allegedly preaching against the government
Following this, Senator Saidu Muhammed Dansadau, Chairman of the committee, accused the Sheik of inciting public outrage.
“I am informing you that you have been suspended from leading prayers in the Apo Legislative Quarters Mosque from today being April 2nd, 2022 until further notice.”
However, the Imam later said he was not given fair hearing, adding that he only read about his suspension.
However, in a letter dated April 4, 2022, stated that the mosque committee told Imam Khalid that he had been relieved of his duties at the mosque.
