When Buhari has finished killing us, he will move to Christians – Shiite Group

The Islamic Movement in Nigeria (IMN) simply known as Shi’ites, have responded to the court decision acquired by the Federal government, pronouncing them as a terrorist group.

On Friday, Justice Nkeonye Maha of the Federal High Court in Abuja, banished the group, restricting their exercises over the Federation.

The banishment pursued the wicked conflict the Islamic gathering individuals had with the police on Monday, July 22nd in Abuja.

The conflict prompted the demise of an adolescent Corper presenting with Channels TV, Precious Owolabi, an appointee police magistrate, Umar Bebel and 10 others.

Responding to the decision, the secretary to the scholarly discussion of the development, Abdullahi Musa, said the Federal government can’t prevent the gathering from rehearsing its religion.

“Everybody is aware of their moves. All they want is to suppress the Islamic Movement in Nigeria (IMN) just to please Saudi Arabia. They want to kill Sheik Ibrahim Zakzaky and silence all of us. When they were killing us, they didn’t get any court order. Now, they are talking of court order, does Buhari obey court orders?

I don’t think any court has the right to ban any religious group. Islamic movement in Nigeria is not an organisation registered under the government, it is a religious group. Are they trying to stop us from saying our daily prayers?” 

Do they want to stop us from participating in our Christian neighbour activities? Do they want to stop us from going to Mecca? The issue is that they have been killing and they want to continue the killings, they should go ahead with their killings, no need to wait for any court. We are practising religion and we will continue to practice our religion, there is no killing or act of intimidation that will stop us from practicing our religion.

The president or the governor of any state cannot force us to adopt their ideology, they want us to succumb to their own ideology and we have said no. This government is killing us because they feel that it this is time for Jihad. They should go ahead with their jihad, when they are through with us they will move to the Christians and other religious bodies. 

You can’t just wake up and say you have proscribed the activities of IMN. It’s like saying you have banned the Catholic Church or any other church. Does that make any sense? Is there any constitution backing that? We are practising religion and we will continue practising the religion they have been killing us and we did not stop practising our religion, they should go ahead because we won’t stop.”

Musa vowed that they will continue to stage a protest until their leader, Ibrahim El-Zakzaky, is released.

Once they allow Zakzaky out of custody, we will leave the streets. If they release him today, they will not see us on the street tomorrow. “ he said.
