The statement added that the Borno State Geographic Information Service (BOGIS) task force has demolished more mosques than churches.
MURIC said it carried out an investigation, which revealed that the demolition of the places of worship is in line with a government decision dating back to 2010.
“Contrary to a coordinated propaganda over the demolition of an EYN church in Maiduguri, the Muslim Rights Concern (MURIC) can authoritatively report that the Borno State Geographic Information Systems (BOGIS) created by Governor Babagana Umara Zulum, actually demolished 11 mosques and four churches, in the metropolis. The exercise began from 29th May, 2019 up till last week,” Akintola said.
