In her briefing with newsmen, women leader of the Islamic Movement in Nigeria, Bauchi chapter, Malama Suwaibat Yunusa said they trooped to the streets to vent their spleen in regard to the continued incarceration of their leader. "we are here to demand the immediate
release of our leader because his continued detention is illegal" She said. She further condemned the apparent violation of women dignity
during the engineered massacre of people in Zaria.
She said women were stripped naked and raped before they were shot to death. "Nigeria is the only country in the world where women and
children are bearing the brunt of targeted assassination by the army who are solely created to protect them. They tore off their dignity, they sexually molested our women, and transferred them to Kaduna prison in the middle of the night.
We therefore wish to send a clear message to the Nigerian government that shooting and killings will never alter our resolve to demand the
release of our leader" She added angrily.
