The Islamic Movement of Nigeria (IMN) otherwise called Shi’ites, has said its members are all ready to die until their leader, Sheihk Ibraheem El Zakzaky, and his wife are released.

The Spokesperson of the Islamic Movement, Abdulahi Musa revealed this to Tribune Online shortly after the burial of 6 of their members killed during a clash with Nigeria police in Abuja.

Musa claimed over 6 of their members were killed during, but the police withheld some corpses from them

“The 6 persons buried today were killed by the Nigerian Police. There are many corpses of our members with the Nigerian Police, someone said he counted 11 corpses of our members with the police.

“They (Police) went to the hospital in Gwagwalada and dispersed people there and went away with our members receiving treatment.

“The police also attacked our members who were protesting today at Wuse 2 in Abuja with live bullets, they shot a man and a woman today.

“They want us to be scared, that is what they always do, but we are not afraid of them because this is the only way, our leader is dying in detention, we can’t just sit at home and watch him dying, let them kill all of us if they are ready to kill,” he noted.

Recall that the between Nigerian and IMN on Monday, 22nd July, 2019, led to the death of a police officer DCP Usman Umar in charge of Operations, a Youth Corps Member attached to Channels Television and many other Shiite members.

Also, the National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA) emergency station was burnt with expensive equipment destroyed.

The IMN had been demanding the release of their leader Sheikh Ibraheem El Zakzaky and his wife who have been in detention for over 4 years after several courts have granted them bail.

The protest by this group had become more fatal and bloody of recent, as many Shiite members have lost their lives during their frequent clashes with security agents. (Nigerian Tribune)
