There is need to correct the wrong impression doing the rounds that there was a clash in Zaria between the Nigerian Army and the Shi’ites, an idea also adopted by the Daily Trust newspaper referring to it as “a bloody clash” in its editorial with the above mentioned heading published on 25th September 2016. There was no such thing as Army-Shiites clash in Zaria on the 12th to 14th December 2015. What actually took place was a coordinated attack on the Islamic Movement in Nigeria (IMN) and its leadership by the Nigerian Army.
During free Shaikh Ibraheem Zakzaky protest in Abuja on Thursday the 22nd of Sept 2016, the protesters were tear gassed by Security forces living many injured, however, the protesters reached National Human Commission and delivered a brief lecture demanding for the release of Shaikh Zakzaky his wife and his followers.
It is well over 9 months since the unjustified incarceration of the Leader of the Islamic Movement in Nigeria by the present administration to the consternation of peace loving citizens of our great country Nigeria. It all started when a contingent of the Nigerian Army on the orders of General Y.T. Buratai descended upon unarmed citizens in Zaria using all the armory at its disposal, killing 1000+ and maiming several hundreds in a two day carnage spree in December, 2015.
