The Academic Forum of the Islamic Movement of Nigeria has demanded for the corpses of their members who were mass graved after their clash with the Nigerian Army in Zaria, Kaduna State, in December 2015.

President of the Academy Abullahi Ibrahim said this in a press statement made available to journalists shortly after the Academy’s mass rally on Thursday in Kaduna.

The statement reads in part: “Bring back the corpses of our Martyrs, who are mass graved by the cruel Nigerian Army, for proper Islamic burial.

“We will not rest on our oars until our leader Sheik Ibraheem Zakzaky, his wife Malama Zeenatu, and other members are been freed.

“We echo our demand that our leader Sheik Zakzaky, his wife Zeenatu and all others members of the movement who are now languishing in different prisons and Army Barracks nationwide must be freed.”

Continuing Ibrahim asked: “What is the crime that the Movement did to deserve this ill-treatment? Is Nigeria not a democratic nation and why that the members of the Movement denied their constitutional right of association?

“Why the attack on Sheik Zakzaky? Why the Movement? Why extra-judicial killing? Why the corpses still denied to their families for proper burial and are all these atrocities happening because sheik Zakzaky and the Movement he is leading are the only true front against tyranny and oppressed in Nigeria?

“After the Zaria massacre, the Nigerian government and the Military spread propaganda about the Movement of blocking the road for COAS to pass, which is a blatant lie. The possession of dangerous weapons in which this massacre they have done proved them wrong.”
