Genocide by the Nigerian Army in Zaria

In the Name of God, the Destroyer of Tyrants

The alleged assassination attempt as traded by the spoke person of the “Nigerian Army,” has now come to be known what it really was – an orchestrated work of Zionists who oversee the training of the killing squad that is supposedly the Nigerian Army who recently besieged Husayniyah Baqiyatullah and the residence of the leader of the Islamic Movement in Nigeria.

The brutal and crude act of pitiless incendiary against innocent defenceless victims and the all-out assault on the Shaykh’s house in Zaria on Saturday, 12th December, 2015 was one of the closest attempts yet by agents of the Zionists to silence the heralded of “the voice of human justice” in the African continent.

The mischievous script was hatched and executed to stage false flag alarm of a violent “sect” seen to be fermenting trouble as the Chief of the Army Staff was on his way to pay homage as well as attend POP in Zaria. But the trend of clandestine acts of desperate moves as made and mooted by the spokespersons of the Nigerian Army exposed the reason why they keep issuing incoherent statements for their dastardly attack at Husayniyah after an initial sporadic shooting and taking away the corpses to their barrack and subsequently besieging the place for many hours before their final onslaughts. 

The second mantra of the evil plot was the unimaginable carnage unleashed and the barbaric genocide to exterminate and uproot all Shi’ites as the soldiers advanced on a killing spree towards the Shaykh’s house chanting mocking-cum-sinister slogan: “Ba Shi’a ba kayanta.” They shot and shelled all our brothers in a way unimaginable.

Contrary to what was made to circulate in both print and electronic media, what happened was never a clash between two groups, but an act of genocide. The soldiers were jubilating that they have finished with the “Shi’ites” while publically their commanders commended and hailed the massacre that took place at Husayniyah, Dar ar-Rahmah and the Shaykh’s residence.

What exposes their crime as genocide was the mutilations and burning made on both the injured and those massacred. The feral assault did not stop at killing and mutilations, some of survivors said they saw how others were gathered and burnt to death among corpses!

In desperate and frenzied move to hide their heinous crime, they resorted to mass graves and burning hundreds of corpses in different locations. At the house of the Shaykh, an estimated 5,000 people are feared to be either killed or injured as at this time.

The Islamic Movement in Nigeria in its almost 40 years formation has always been peaceful, as such no amount of oppression and repression can make us to lose focus of the principle and values it so much invested in form of the highest sacrifice. God will definitely help His oppressed servants.

In view of all the above, we hereby call on all peace lovers and the International Community to join us in condemning the act for what it is – genocide. In addition, we will like to state the following:

(1) Members of the Movement demand the unconditional release of Shaykh Ibrahim al-Zakzaky as a means of taming the situation from further escalation.

(2) All corpses of blood-stained brothers and sisters must be handed over to us for proper Islamic burial.

(3) All detainees must be released together with the injured for medical attention.

(4) A strong and all-inclusive committee must be set up that include local and international representation to investigate and make public its findings for the world to know the truth.

(5) Compensation must be paid for the loss of lives and property, and those who committed the genocide must be made to face the wrath of the law.
