REJOINDER: BBC Hausa and Their Biased Report on Islamic Republic of Iran:

Dissection of the Judicial Commission of Inquiry Report

Having gone through the executive summary of the Judicial Commission (JUDCOM) of Inquiry into the Zaria massacre one cannot but reject the report as absurd, biased & unacceptable.

The report even went as far as to ‘indict’ Shaikh Zakzaky without hearing his side of the story. This must be a new peak of injustice ever.

By Abdulmumin Giwa

Going through the report submitted by the commission to the Kaduna state Governor Nasir El-Rufai as recently made public, one would have no reason to doubt the earlier assertion by the IMN.
