Zamfara Chief Imam goes into hiding after resignation

The Chief Imam of Gusau GRA Jumuat Mosque, Sheikh Tukur Sani Jangeme, who resigned from his position, has fled the state.

Sheikh Jangeme resigned from his position as Chief Imam last Friday following a video clip that went viral where he was seen condemning Governor Dauda Lawal and praising his predecessor, Bello Matawale.

Speaking with Sunday PUNCH on the phone, he said he left the state for security reasons as well as to douse the tension generated by his comments in the video clip.

He said, “I am not in Zamfara State at the moment. I decided to leave the state for security reasons and also to let the matter die down naturally.”

“You are aware that some people are not happy with what I have said in that video clip, as such, I decided to resign from my position as Chief Imam and also leave the state.”

The cleric, however, refused to disclose his location and speak further.
