El-Rufai plotting to kill our members to scare people from joining us – Shi’ite

on

The Islamic Movement of Nigeria, IMN, has accused the Kaduna State Governor, Mallam Nasir El-Rufai of plotting to kill its members in order to scare people away from the group.

A statement by IMN President of Media Forum, Ibrahim Musa, alleged that El-Rufai was on a “mission to provoke its members to another killing spree.”

The statement reads in part, “We are aware that the Nasir El-Rufai-led Kaduna state government is in a mission trying to provoke IMN members to justify another killing spree on them having failed in an earlier attempt using security men dressed as thugs to attack, kill and loot property of IMN members.

“We are also aware that the state government is planning to clampdown on IMN members in the state, killing as many as possible in the most cruel means possible, in order to scare people away from the IMN. The Elrufai government is also wasting scarce state resources in sponsoring some dubious religious clerics to preach hate and enmity in the state, rather than investing in solving the myriads of problems bedevilling the state.

“We call on Mr. Nasiru El-Rufai to desist from further suppression of IMN members and the brazen violations of our Rights to worship, associate and not to be discriminated against. Moreso, he has no business deciding what faith people adhere to.

“No amount of suppression, destruction of property, or wanton killing can wipe out our faith. Hence all his efforts shall be futile.

“It is now a duty upon the public to speak out against the continued murder of IMN members by the Nigerian government or choose to live with the impending repercussion of such uncivilized behavior.

“We wish to reiterate our stance never to engage in any form of lawlessness despite all efforts by the state to provoke us in order to find a reason to shed innocent human blood. It is rather unfortunate that the only trademark exhibited by the government of today is extra-judicial killings, mass murder and religious sectarianism, these are detrimental to progress and development of the country. As people wallow in hardship and poverty their leaders are busy wasting state resources fighting sectarian course.”

Shi’ite’s allegation is coming at a time the United States, U.S, called on the Nigerian government to defend the rights of members of the movement.
