FG has a grand plan to wipe us out completely – Shi’ites

The Islamic Movement in Nigeria otherwise known as Shi’ites on Monday alleged that the Federal Government has a grand plan to wipe out the sect.
The head of Martyr Foundation of IMN, Sheikh Abdulhamid Bello stated this at a press briefing in Kano.
He said the group’s Ashura procession had ended peacefully before sucurity agents attacked shiite members.
Bello said President Muhammadu Buhari has never sympathized with the group since it has lost members to face-offs with security agents.
‘’We were walking away from Kano toward Zaria and we did not obstruct traffic. It was the heavily armed police officers, who scattered the hitherto orderly, peaceful and solemn procession. There was simply no justification for the police attack, who unjustifiably shot indiscriminately, killing men, women and children, including an eight month-old infant.’’
Bello asked that the Federal Government order the release of over 100 corpses of their members for proper burial.
He urged Nigerians “to be mindful of the shameless disregard to civilians’ lives and property exhibited by the Buhari-led administration.”
The scholar asked Nigerians to
caution “President Buhari and his lieutenants and to remind them that they were not voted into office to kill those they harbour religious enmity against.”
“Finally, we also reiterate our demand for the unconditional release of our leader, Sheikh Ibraheem Zakzaky, his wife, and all those being detained illegally since the pogrom against us commenced,” he said.
