The Shiite Islamic Movement in Nigeria, IMN, has vowed to challenge the Kaduna State Government’s decision to ban the organisation.
The Kaduna State Government had on Friday, issued an order declaring the Shiite Islamic Movement in Nigeria, IMN, an unlawful society.
The government said the action was taken to preserve peace and security in the state, and to ensure that all persons and organisations are guided by lawful conduct and with due allegiance to the Nigerian state and its constitution.
The spokesperson of the movement, Ibraheem Musa, while reacting to the ban on Saturday in Kaduna, said the decision infringed on their basic right as citizen of the country.
“We are not going to be intimidated into taking any violence or unlawful means.
“Very soon, we shall challenge this ban through legal and peaceful means,” he added.
