Adoke lamented that the yet to be resolved Imamship crises has pitched two Islamic group; the Tijaniya and Ansarul Islamic Society of Nigeria in the area against each other as a result of disagreement on the mode of ascension to the position of Chief Imam of the central Juma’at mosque in Okene.

According to him “Our concern is that instead of addressing the mode of ascension that has generated palpable tension, Kogi State Government waded in and appointed one of the contenders as acting chief Imam for an indefinite period.

“Thus giving the appointee an undue advantage over other contenders, a situation that seems to have generated more tension in the area.”

While calling on the State Governor, Alhaji Yahaya Bello, to as a matter of urgency do the needful to avoid further crises that can snowball into massive killings and destructions of property, Adoke cautioned that religious crises can be more disastrous than political crises if urgent steps are not taken.

“As much as we appreciated and commended the quick intervention of the state governor , His Excellency Governor Yahaya Bello immediately after the demise of Late Chief Imam Alhaji Musa Galadima, we still appeal to your honourable office and other Islamic Authority to act promptly in order to avert further crises against the existing peace we are enjoying in Kogi State.
