Dr Jangebe said his decision to resign his position as Chief Iman was to ensure the peace and security of the mosque and its community.

He also assured his continued support and contribution in the development and success of the mosque and Islamic in the state and the country at large.

Speaking with newsmen, the former Chief Imam said his resignation was connected to a video clip in which he was seen praying for Governor Bello Matawale, and he did similar prayers to the present Governor Dauda Lawal when he was campaigning for the position.

The cleric expressed concern that the video clip had gone viral on social media platforms and had generated mixed reactions and tension among political elites and religious communities in the state.
