30

Crises Has erupted in Billiri LGA of Gombe over the Selection Of New Mai Tangale following the death of the 15 Mai Tangale Dr Abdu Buba-Maisheru (II) ( Christian) who died Jan 11 2021. He Succeeded The Previous Mai Tangale are Mai Yamba 13th Mai Tangale( Muslim) Mai Illyasu 14th Mai Tangale (Muslim) The Crises is between Christian and Muslims of Same Tribe Called Tangale in Gombe state over the the selection of the 16th Mai Tangale by the Government of Gombe State. The issue here is 3 candidates where presented to the governor for his final selection by the king makers out of 18 contestants. 3 of them are from thesame family of a previous king who happened to be a Muslim. One of the 3 contestants from the same family is a christian while the others are Muslim. The contestants names are 1. Dr musa Idris Maiyamba ( christian) 2. Alhaji Danladi Maiyamba (Muslim) 3. Alhaji Ahmad Magaji (Muslim) The christians of the Tangale extraction began protesting that they suspect since the Governor is a muslim he will definitely back the muslim candidate against thier wish for a Christian to succeed the Dead Mai Tangale who happen to be a Christian too. The christian protesters block Gombe Yola High way and attack motorist. They attack Billiri Market where muslims amogst them own most of the businesses and burn to the ground. They attack about 5 mosque and houses of muslims kinsmen including Ambassador Said u Muhammed. The Muslims kinsmen are asking a question why would thier Christian kinsmen attack them and thier properties, place of worship over a selection process that has not been concluded. Why they the Muslims did not attack the Christians when the Mai Tangale was given to a Christian by Governor Hasidic government. The Crime against Muslims by thier Christian kinsmen is too numerous to mention from Jukun to Tangale ETC. The surprising thing here is they are all same tribe and intermarried each other. These questions are disturbing and needed urgent response from the christian kinsmen of these tribes. Pic1 Burning and looting of Muslim Shops at billiri market. Pic 2.
