The Islamic Movement of Nigeria (IMN), also known as Shi’ites have protested over the continued killing of innocent citizens in the northern part of the country, and the killing of George Floyd by American policeman.
Shi’ites said as sacred as human life, Nigeria has suddenly been turned into an area of land in which the existence of killing fields causes no sleepless nights for the so-called rulers running its affairs, still less putting an effort to contain the existential menace and nuisance bedeviling it.
This is contained in a statement issued by Abdullahi Musa on behalf of the Academic Forum of the Islamic Movement in Nigeria. The protest kick-started at the entrance of the Juma’at Mosque opposite Custom head office, Zone 3, Wuse Abuja around 1:45 pm, immediately after the Juma’at prayer. It followed through Sultan Abubakar Way and terminated at Zone 3 junction beside Total Feeling station along Habert Macurly way.
The perpetrators get into a village or town, destroy things and steal property without even thinking of getting punished, or having a feeling of guilt at all, about their misdeeds. They wreak whatever havoc of which they had thought in cold blood and with impunity.
Shi’ites Protesters. “What happens to the refugees destroyed and burnt villages? This is such a question that keeps on begging for an answer, and it is not far-fetched for those who are reasonable enough to give an attentive listening ear to what the oppressively imprisoned leader of the Islamic movement in Nigeria, Sheikh Ibraheem el-Zakzaky, exposed almost eight years ago, a video clip is on-going around the social media. The IMN further said in 2013, the Sheikh (El-Zakzaky) made known the culprits behind the senseless killings and criminalities in the North in collusion with some unfocused and conscienceless Nigerians, and thus brought to light their plots and targets.
Therefore, to get what they aim at, they have to displace the persons therein, and this is why Boko-Haram, banditry and kidnapping continue to thrive and keep pestering the areas.
