Muslims Threaten Reprisal Attack After Fake News On Demolition Of Mosque In Rivers Goes Viral

There appears to an ongoing  anger brewing against the fake news which has been circulating on social micro-blogging platform, Twitter.

Recall that twitter user Gimba Kakanda, @gimbakakanda had posted a tweet of an alleged mosque in Rivers State that had allegedly being demolished by the Rivers State government.

However, subsequent update has revealed  otherwise.

This has however led to some angry outburst by Muslims who are in Kano State threatening a reprisal attack on churches in Kano.

Some tweets seen online revealed this;

However, other twitter users have expressed divergent opinions. Twitter user @abduljoe11 said ”No sane Muslim will come out to support the demolishing of a place of worship for reprisal, even if the purported news is true. As for gimba he needs to verify news before he tweeted it. Things like this can easily cause religious crisis and mayhem” while @Gabrielaniebona @MrOdanz said ”Gimba is not even in nigeria at d moment but wants to cause riot with his tweet”.
