    Kaduna only banned IMN, not Shi’iasm – el-Rufai

    Kaduna State governor, Mallam Nasir el-Rufai  yesterday said that the state government only declared the Islamic Movement of Nigeria (IMN) banned and not the Shi’ite.
    The spokesman of the governor, Mr. Samuel Aruwan who spoke to journalists in Kaduna, categorically stated that Shi’itism “as a religious body is not ban, but we only ban IMN.”
    According to the governor’s spokesman, the action of the government declaring IMN as “unlawful society” was derived from the judiciary commission of inquiry.
    He said, “The action has nothing to do with Shi’ite.”
    The state government officially released Gazette on Sheikh Ibrahim Zakzaky’s led Islamic Movement in Nigeria (IMN) that has been declared unlawful society.
    The government disclosed that it “did not and cannot ban any religion, but it has a duty to declare unlawful any group that threatens peace and security.”
    Samuel Aruwan, said government upholds religious freedoms and all constitutional rights of every resident to practice the religion of their choice.
    Aruwan noted that it is fundamental obligation of the government to preserve security and uphold the rights of all citizens both to practice their faith and not be imperiled or be distressed by the way others exercise their faith.
