The Imam of Gwammaja Mosque has been arrested by the Kano State for holding Juma’at prayer, in spite of a lockdown order issued to curb the spread of Coronavirus.


Recall that the Kano State government had ordered a total lockdown in the state for seven days after four cases of COVID-19 were confirmed, starting from Thursday 16th April.
