Facebook. What happens to our humanity and collective conscience?

By Sunusi Umar Sadiq

This is the question I asked myself this evening as I passed by BUK Road by Danagundi and saw members of the Islamic Movement in Nigeria (a.k.a. Shi'ites) leading a demonstration calling for the release of their leader who has been in detention since December last year following the now historic Zaria Massacre.

Ultimatum And Threats Of Violence Not In Our Character

 

It has become expedient to make this clarification that the Islamic Movement in Nigeria (IMN) has never employed the use of ultimatum or the issuance of threats of violence in its entire four decades of existence to anyone, group or authority. This is not about to change. A recent media campaign allegedly claims that “ultimatum” was issued. 

Nigerian Government Desperate to Kill Sheikh Zakzaky.

It can be recalled that last year in November, there was a bomb attack on the Arbaeen procession from Kano to Zaria which killed over 20 people and injured many, shortly after this incidence a statement was said to have been released by the so-called "Boko Haram" claiming responsibility for the attack, in this statement it was mentioned  "And by the permission of Allah these attacks of ours against Shi’a polytheism will continue until we cleanse the earth of their filth.

Nigeria: Crackdown on Journalists and Assault on Protests Shrinking Civic Space

The continuing spate of arrests and detentions of journalists and bloggers amid the security forces’ violent disruption of peaceful protests underscores how the Nigerian government appears determined to crush dissent and suffocate freedom of expression, said Amnesty International today.

The organization is calling for the authorities to ensure the rights of Nigerians to freedom of peaceful assembly and freedom of expression, as guaranteed by international human rights law and the Nigerian Constitution.

The Sham in Boko Haram New Video

By U. S. Adam

Nigerian Government during different regimes have no mission other than to eliminate the leader of the Islamic Movement in Nigeria, Sheikh Ibraheem Zakzaky (H) and wiping out his peaceful movement by all means. The agenda is been succeeded from one President to the other.
Many presidents have tried to accomplished that colonist mission but have failed. Some have got to the extent of imprisoning the Sheikh and killing some of his members, others have even killed his 3 biological sons.

OUR DEMAND IS SIMPLE: FREE SHAIKH ZAKZAKY

By Ammar Muhammad Rajab

You can’t prevent people from protest without tackling the grievances of the protest. What prompted the protest? It’s the continued Illegal detention of Shaikh Ibraheem Zakzaky. Do you really want us to halt the peaceful protests? Then release Shaikh Zakzaky unconditionally. To protest on an issue in a democratic system of government looks constitutional.

SHEKAU’s SCAM: A NEW PLOT TO ATTACK SHEIKH ZAKZAKY

The 40 minutes new video released by the spectre leader of the group Boko Haram happens to be nothing but a scam and a new plot in the making to attack the incarcerated leader of the Islamic movement in Nigeria.
Earlier on Sunday 25th September 2016, it was BBC, an indigenous foreign broadcasting outlet that first published the new Shekau’s scam on their website. The BBC report was what drew the attention of many people to the new clip, especially their emphases on the part where Shekau was referring to the Islamic movement in Nigeria and its leader Sheikh Ibrahim Zakzaky.

PRESS STATEMENT: Sheikh El-Zakzaky Deserves Release Not Trial

Our attention has been drawn to an editorial by the respected national newspaper Sunday Trust of 25/09/16, wherein a call for the trial of the leader of the Islamic Movement in Nigeria, Sheikh Ibraheem Zakzaky was made, instead of his outright release from illegal detention. We wouldn’t have joined issues with the newspaper, had it not been for the glaring contradiction in its stand on the Zaria massacre carried out by the Army in December 2015.

Re-Charge El-Zakzaky to court

There is need to correct the wrong impression doing the rounds that there was a clash in Zaria between the Nigerian Army and the Shi’ites, an idea also adopted by the Daily Trust newspaper referring to it as “a bloody clash” in its editorial with the above mentioned heading published on 25th September 2016. There was no such thing as Army-Shiites clash in Zaria on the 12th to 14th December 2015. What actually took place was a coordinated attack on the Islamic Movement in Nigeria (IMN) and its leadership by the Nigerian Army.
