Facts have emerged on how the ongoing romance between Islamic cleric, Shiek Sani Yahaya Jingir and the Plateau State Governor, Simon Bako Lalong saved the Sheikh from being embrassed and molested on Tuesday by the police who invited him over the violation of order on CoronaVirus.
A senior police officer who pleaded anonimity said the Islamic cleric would have been rough handled considering the gravity of the offence he committed which threatens National security.
He said the state government and security apparatus where left with no other options then to treat the matter lightly.
According to him, the state police command headquarters in Jos metropolis couldnt make use of their earlier threat “because of the governor’s influence
It was reliably gathered that another reason for the police inability to detain the JIBWIS leader was partly because of his alleged crucial role in the election of the APC government in the state and at national level.
It was gathered that at the time the Plateau Police boss handed the cleric to the State Security Service, he was forced to make a confessional statement denouncing his earlier claims.
Observers in the state believe that the damages done by the earlier statement that CoronaVirus does not exist has created a lot of enlightenment difficulties for the state government.
Such violation of the state government’s directives on COVID-19 by both Muslim and Christian clerics is now causing the problem of compliance from the people in the state.
