The Shiite Muslim movement in Nigeria have disclosed that they will vote in a candidate that believes in fairness and religious freedom.
As you may know, leader of the Islam Sect in Nigeria, has been under custody of the Nigerian Army since Friday 25 July 2014, when the Nigerian Army reportedly fatally shot 35 of his followers , including three of his sons, after a pro-Palestinian procession in Zaria.
In a statement signed by a member of the Resource Forum of the Shitte Muslims, Muhammad Ibrahim Gamawa, the sect said that no true follower of Sheikh Ibraheem Zakzaky would vote any party or candidate that is against the peaceful existence of shia in the nation.
The statement read:
“Ordinarily, this fraudster would have been ignored if he had not mentioned the Zaria and recent Abuja massacre planned and executed by men of the Nigerian Army of which the victims are one hundred per cent all followers of Sheikh Zakzaky.
“It is important for the general public to know that contrary to the five million votes the fraudster, Amir Sadiq Mohammed mentioned in the said report, the movement has more than eight million registered voters who would go out on the election day and cast their votes to the candidate that believes in justice, fairness and religious freedom.
“Furthermore, it is equally important to mention that we do not have anything against any political party in Nigeria, neither are we political group. It is pertinent to know that no adherent of Sheikh Ibraheem Zakzaky will ever support a party or any candidate that has taken it upon himself to wipe out Shia Muslims in the country,”
You may also recall that on October 30 2018, the Shiite Muslim movement said Nigerian troops shot and killed at least 27 of its members during a procession to the capital of Abuja.
Confirming the incident, Spokesperson of the group, Ibrahim Musa said six people were killed on Saturday and another 21 on Monday, 29 October 2018.
But in response, Nigeria’s military said it killed six people and that the Shiite protesters fired first at the soldiers.
