    El-Rufai ‘instigates’ attack on IMN members-spokesman


    Islamic Movement of Nigeria, Monday said that Nasir el-rufai, governor of Kaduna state, Nigeria, instigated the recent attack by security agents in collaboration with some unemployed youths on members of the movement.

    Ibrahim Musa, president, media forum for IMN, made this disclosure in a statement on the on-going issue between the movement and the security agencies.

    According to Musa, in Kaduna and Kano states, tens of members of IMN arrested were released on bail being minors.

    His words: “It is surprising therefore why the case in Katsina and Plateau states should be different, when evidence strongly suggests that the attacks in all the states were orchestrated by a central command”.

    In the same vein, those who were brutalised and injured among those in detention are yet to get proper medical attention. They are prisoners of conscience.

    This is unfortunate and a gross miscarriage of justice. All humanitarian laws recognize that prisoners should not be denied medical treatment. This cannot be an exception.

    We also condemn in very strong words the inhuman brutality meted to IMN members by the Army in Jos for no other reason than their faith. We therefore call for their release without further delays.

    IMN recognizes that the recent attack on its members by security agents in collaboration with some unemployed youths across the various states was instigated by Kaduna state governor, Nasir  El-rufai.

    We are aware that he has even planned for Katsina state a vicious plot and model of how to attack IMN members in Katsina metropolis.

    This diabolical plot involves attack whenever IMN members leave their Islamic centre for any educational program, and the opportunity to burn and raze our centre will be created and executed.

    We believe Elrufai is inciting hate with a view to minority cleansing in his self styled war against the Islamic Movement in Nigeria.

    He already has a case of crime against humanity, which he is frantically trying to cover. Nevertheless this will not deter us in our pursuit of justice for the victims of the Zaria massacre.


    We therefore reiterate our call for the unconditional release of our leader Sheikh Ibraheem Zakzaky, his wife and all others under detention for almost a year now.
