The imperialist got readily recruitment base in Wahhabism, a deviant ideology that promote hate, intolerance and terrorism. And Oil rich Arab countries such as Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Kuwait etc sponsor these murderous Wahhabi terrorists who only kill, rape and destroy.

SERIAL VIOLATION OF OUR RIGHTS CONTINUE WITH STATE-SPONSORED HATE, VIOLENCE AND REPRESSION
Good day Ladies and Gentlemen of the press.
Arbaeen symbolic trek From Kaduna Axis held today Monday 21-11-2016 by Members of the Islamic Movement in Nigeria under the leadership of Sheikh Ibraheem Zakzaky.
Arba'een Mass Trek Marched in Kaduna, Nigeria:
Despite a temporal and moribund treat and gazette put fourth Kaduna State government on ban and persecution of renown clerics of the Islamic Movement in Nigeria, brothers and sisters of the Movement in Kaduna zone, have today, 21st of October, 2016, staged mass Arba'een trek from Kaduna to Zaria.
The sole result of bodies aligned side by side, when performing prayer, is a source of nobility for the Prophet(pbuh); but it is also a source of dignity and respect for the Muslim Ummah. Therefore, this is also true for the Hajj congregation. You witnessed, this year, the millions of people who were brought together on Arbaeen. This great movement was preformed by a group of Muslims—it was not only for Shias, Sunnis had joined in, too—and it’s reflection stretched throughout the world; everyone bowed down before this event, for they admired it.
The 20th of the month of Safar 1438 AH marks the 40th day after the Shahada (martyrdom) of Imam Hussain (AS), grandson of Prophet Muhammad (SAWA) alongside his family and loyal companions, who were martyred by the forces of the despotic Umayyad Caliph Yazid, in the year 61 AH in Karbala, Iraq.
Members of the Islamic movement of Nigeria have accused the police of using poisoned bullets and tear gas against its people during the last Monday’s clash.
Addressing a news conference today, leader of the movement in Kano Sheikh Sanusi Abdulkadir says doctor’s investigations confirmed that the bullet and tear gas used by the police are poisoned.
On November 13, 2016, members of the Islamic Movement of Nigeria clashed with operatives of the Nigeria Police attached to Kano command leading to the death of one police officer and at least eight members of the movement.

Last year during Arba'een
symbolic trek we were targeted by a (so called Boko haram) suicide bomber, who killed dozens of brothers and sisters. Some moments after the attack, the invisible Abubakar Shekau claims the responsibility of the killings.

The tittle of my right up may surprise you asking yourself a question, how would the right of patriotic citizens be deprived? Yes, that is what is happening in my country. We were born in a country that the government of the county do not value the life of the patriotic citizens. A country that did not care about what will tarnish it's image. A country whose aim is to slaughter who ever wants to bring development to it.
My attention was drawn to an article published by Breaking Times, this day, 18th of November, 2016 by one Kolawole Anthony. The article states that "Nigeria is in the grip of terrorists’ groups. Boko Haram is being degraded in the North-East. Niger-Delta militants could soon be pacified at talks in the South-South. Separatists in the South-East are tending towards intellectual struggle. Only the Shiite Islamic Movement in Nigeria (IMN) is proving recalcitrant". From the first paragraph of Anthony's article, I got to understand where he was heading to.
A combined team of security and Kaduna State government personnel have demolished the Fudiyya Islamic School at Zaria and the Husainiyya in Saminaka.

Government plans another clandestine operation against Arbaeen trek
It has come to the notice of the Islamic Movement in Nigeria (IMN) that security agents have been deploying some youths and miscreants, in two luxurious buses tonight. These young men are clad in black attire with ‘free Zakzaky’ inscriptions. They are particularly spotted around Malumfashi, Katsina state, probably in anticipation of the Arbaeen mourning trek scheduled to take off from there.
(AhlulBayt News Agency) - Well armed police men in close to a hundred police trucks on Monday, opened fire on the peaceful Arbaeen trek to Zaria in the outskirts of Kano metropolis, killing close to a hundred members of the Islamic movement (IMN) including women and children.

It is definitely clear to the world that members of the Islamic Movement in Nigeria have on several occasions played victims to unprovoked attacks by Nigerian government and her security agents.
Any time they feel like testing the capacity of their troops they clampdown on IMN member and kill as many as they wish even as they clearly and fearfully run for dear life when attacked by Boko Haram or Niger Delta militants.
Once again the current Buhari regime in Nigeria has exposed itself as an inhuman and criminal regime that has no regard for the rights if its citizens or the sanctity of human life. According to the Islamic Movement of Nigeria (IMN) and other trusted sources, well armed police men in close to a hundred police trucks yesterday 14/11/16, opened fire on the peaceful Arbaeen trek to Zaria in the outskirts of Kano metropolis, killing close to a hundred members of the movement including women and children.

Nigerian Police Attack Peaceful Arbaeen Trekkers in Kano Axis, they open fire to peaceful treakkers, and then some of the Police Men intentionally shoot one of their Colleague to death. This is another evil plan to Suppress Islamic Movement in Nigeria.
So that they will keep on massacring more of Members of Islamic Movement in Nigeria while they are trekking from Kano to zaria.

It is obviously known to the whole world that, Shiites are the most peaceful people. In history, Shiites have no record of terrorism and none of them was ever caught guilty of terrorism. In facts, it is even prohibited to kill a soul intentionally without Islamic permit by the 'Marji'i'. Also, no group of terrorism that ever seems to be Shiites in history being it Boko-Haram, ISIS, Alqaeeda, alshabab and others. They all called themselves 'Ahl-Sunnah'.
