60 Day of the Zaria Massacre by the Nigerian Army: we need justice
On 12th & 13th December, 2015, the Nigerian Army launched a coordinated & pre-planned attacks on the peaceful Islamic Movement of Nigeria (IMN) & massacred 1000+ defenseless Nigerians in Zaria. They burnt Nigerians alive & shot women in their private parts & stabbed them in their breasts with rifle bayonets.
What happened in Zaria was undoubtedly a war crime & we demand Justice. The Nigerian government from its body language is not willing to do justice on the brutal Zaria Massacre as from credible sources high placed Nigerian officials are behind that massacre.
To this day the dead bodies of the victims have not been returned to their families for proper Islamic burial. The Leader of IMN, Sheikh Ibraheem Zakzaky who was shot six (6) & his wife who was shot twice according to reports are held incommunicado by the oppressive & tyrannical Nigerian government. In violation of their fundamental human rights they are denied visits by their Lawyers and close family relation. It was also reported that three (3) biological son of Sheikh Zakzaky were brutally slaughtered by the Nigerian Army in the residence of the revered Scholar.
Such evil & wickedness can only be perpetrated by the most ungodly, the Zaria Massacre was a monumental savagery that even the murderous terrorist groups such as ISIS & BokoHaram will be shock to hear it’s narrations. A heavily-pregnant woman was shot in her chest, she gave birth due to the shock & the child was crushed with an amoured vehicle. The Zaria Husseiniyya was bombarded with Rocket Propelled Grenades ( RPG ) & 100+ of Nigerians slaughtered & buried alive there. After 72 hours six bodies were extracted from the rubble with 3 alive & 3 dead.
While the Nigerian Army was busy killing Nigerian Shia Muslims in Zaria, they were chanting anti – Shia slogans that only bloodthirsty Wahhabi terrorist groups like ISIS, AlQaeda, #BokoHaram etc that have Shia Genocide as a Global agenda will chant.
They did not stop there as they went to the grave yard of IMN & desecrated it, such barbaric acts are only perpetrated by followers of the deviant Wahhabi sect in history.
It is important to note that we are people of remembrance & the Karbala Tragedy despite it is 1300+ years-old but it is still fresh in our memory. If our Nigerian oppressors think we will forget the Zaria massacre with the passage of time then they are grossly ignorant of who we are.
Once again heartfelt condolences to all the families of the Martyrs of the brutal Zaria massacre, may God give you the fortitude to bear these monumental loss. And as for those injure & all the captives, God heal the injured & free the captives. And for our tyrannical oppressors we say “Eternal curse & damnation of God upon all tyrants & oppressors!”.
