“El-Zakzaky, wife recuperating in Abuja”

Sheikh Ibrahim El-Zakzaky

The Islamic Movement of Nigeria, a Shi’ia group, on Thursday said its leader, Ibraheem El-Zakzaky and his wife, Zeenah, were recuperating from gunshot wounds at an undisclosed location in Abuja.

A statement by the group’s spokesman, Ibrahim Musa, said Mr. El-Zakzaky was visited by the contact committee of National Supreme Council of Islamic Affairs, NSCIA on Wednesday.

“On Wednesday 13th January, 2016 some members of the contact committee set up by the NSCIA visited Sheikh Ibraheem Yaqoub Zakzaky, leader of the Islamic Movement, who is incarcerated by the federal government since 14th December, 2015.

“According to a member of the committee, Prof. Dahiru Yahya, they met the Sheikh and his wife, Sister Zeenah Ibraheem, in Abuja, and are all recuperating from the bullet wounds they sustained during the army’s attack on the Islamic Movement in Zaria.

“The Islamic movement welcomes this development. It is a step forward in quelling the anxiety of the teeming millions of Muslims and Non-Muslims alike, all over the globe, in knowing at least the whereabouts of the Sheikh and the condition of his health,” Mr. Musa said.

The group however said it was steadfast in its demand for justice and the release of its leader.

“However, we are still adamant in our request that the Sheikh be set free unconditionally, because up to now the government has not been able to justify the unjustifiable atrocities committed by the army that led to his arrest.

“So far we have been able to establish some figures that indicate how gruesome the avoidable attack by the Nigerian Army has been.

“In our list, there are about 730 people, men and women who are still missing since that fateful Saturday 12th December, 2015. These missing people were either killed by the army or are in detention. Their whereabouts is still unknown and undisclosed.

“Also there are 220 brothers of the Islamic movement in detention in Kaduna Central prison, some of them with fatal gun wounds and burns.

“Reliable reports from some detention facilities owned by the Nigerian Army in Kaduna, Bauchi and Abuja have confirmed the detention of some brothers of the Islamic movement therein.

“As at the time of writing this statement, no single corpse has been handed to the families of those killed.

“In as much as we commend the NSCIA for its effort to resolve this crisis initiated and executed by the military, we still demand answers to some questions that the Chief of army staff couldn’t answer when the contact committee met him in his office.

“The questions are as follows as narrated in a national daily by a member of the committee: What is the actual number of the dead, and when are they going to be handed over to their relatives for proper burial? Are the injured receiving adequate treatment?” said Mr. Musa.

The group therefore demanded the unconditional release of Mr. El-Zakzaky, his followers and the bodies of those killed for burial according to Islamic rites.

While calling on human rights activists to mount pressure on government to do justice to them, they also called on government to set up an independent judicial commission under the supervision of international community.

    This is unconscionable. Why did Imam Mohamed and his thugs attack unarmed women and children simply because they don’t belong to his particular sect of Islam? My Allah bring quick recovery to El-Zakzaky’s family and those who suffered severe beating, gunshots, rape, and molestation at the hands of the thugs.

      And clowns claimed Buhari “Islamized” Nigeria!

      • Otile

        He is trying to Islamize Nigeria with his own sect of Islam, his murderous sect is different from that of El-Zakzaky. For example, Imam Buhari committed 2 massacres in the month of December, show me where El-Zakzaky and his sect did any harm to anybody. In case you have forgotten so quickly, Imam slaughtered several people in Onitsha, and hundreds of El-Zakzaky’s people in birnin Zaria. Can you dispute that fact in good conscience?

        • Burbank

          How many people were killed by the US and Russia in Iraq, Yemen, Afghanistan, Syria?


        The Shiite massacre only confirms that the Sunni dominated security apparatus led by Buhari are on a jihadist mission.

        • Burbank

          So now Buhari is an Anti-Islam Pro-Christian president?
          Make up your mind, racist bigot.


            The administration is pro Sunni .

          • Burbank

            So a pro-sunni is anti-islam pro-christian now?


            Go on till you get it .

  • Burbank

    And last month, the shiites claimed to the world that Zakzaky had died!
    Just shows these liars are willing to stop at nothing to propagate their evil ways under the guise of severe beating, gunshots, rape, and molestation at the hands of the thugs.

    • Otile

      Only you and your yorobber tribesmen heard the imaginary death of El-Zakzaky. I pity you oduafraudians and your foolish_propaganda. Are you lots only existing to serve and defend your Fulani masters? Pathetic.

  • RestructureNigeria

    As long the Muslim population remains around or under 2% in any given country, they will be for the most part be regarded as a peace-loving minority, and not as a threat to other citizens. Although there WILL be islamic attacks..

    United States — Muslim 0.6%

    Australia — Muslim 1.5%

    Canada — Muslim 1.9%

    China — Muslim 1.8%

    Italy — Muslim 1.5%

    Norway — Muslim 1.8%

    At 2% to 5%, they begin to proselytize from other ethnic minorities and disaffected groups, often with major recruiting from the jails and among street gangs. There will be MORE attacks at this level

    This is happening in:

    Denmark — Muslim 2%

    Germany — Muslim 3.7%

    United Kingdom — Muslim 2.7%

    Spain — Muslim 4%

    Thailand — Muslim 4.6%

    From 5% on, they exercise an inordinate influence in proportion to their percentage of the population. For example, they will push for the introduction of halal (clean by Islamic standards) food, thereby securing food preparation jobs for Muslims. They will increase pressure on supermarket chains to feature halal on their shelves — along with threats for failure to comply. There will now be a level of fear from the natural population towards muslims This is occurring in:

    France — Muslim 8%

    Philippines — 5%

    Sweden — Muslim 5%

    Switzerland — Muslim 4.3%

    The Netherlands — Muslim 5.5%

    Trinidad & Tobago — Muslim 5.8%

    At this point, they will work to get the ruling government to allow them to rule themselves (within their ghettos) under Sharia, the Islamic Law. The ultimate goal of Islamists is to establish Sharia law over the entire world.

    When Muslims approach 10% of the population, they tend to increase lawlessness as a means of complaint about their conditions. In Paris , we are already seeing car-burnings. Any non-Muslim action offends Islam, and results in uprisings and threats, such as in Amsterdam , with opposition to Mohammed cartoons and films about Islam. Such tensions are seen daily, particularly in Muslim sections, in: Almost DAILY attacks in this range

    Guyana — Muslim 10%

    India — Muslim 13.4%

    Israel — Muslim 16%

    Kenya — Muslim 10%

    Russia — Muslim 15%

    After reaching 20%, nations can expect hair-trigger rioting, jihad militia formations, sporadic killings, and the burnings of Christian churches and Jewish synagogues, such as in:

    Ethiopia — Muslim 32.8%

    At 40%, nations experience widespread massacres, chronic terror attacks, and ongoing militia warfare, such as in:

    Bosnia — Muslim 40%

    NIGERIA– Muslim 42.8%

    Chad — Muslim 53.1%

    Lebanon — Muslim 59.7%

    From 60%, nations experience unfettered persecution of non-believers of all other religions (including non-conforming Muslims), sporadic ethnic cleansing (genocide), use of Sharia Law as a weapon, and ***ya, the tax placed on infidels, such as in:

    Albania — Muslim 70%

    Malaysia — Muslim 60.4%

    Qatar — Muslim 77.5%

    Sudan — Muslim 70%

    After 80%, expect daily intimidation and violent jihad, some State-run ethnic cleansing, and even some genocide, as these nations drive out the infidels, and move toward 100% Muslim, such as has been experienced and in some ways is on-going in:

    Bangladesh — Muslim 83%

    Egypt — Muslim 90%

    Gaza — Muslim 98.7%

    Indonesia — Muslim 86.1%

    Iran — Muslim 98%

    Iraq — Muslim 97%

    Jordan — Muslim 92%

    Morocco — Muslim 98.7%

    Pakistan — Muslim 97%

    Palestine — Muslim 99%

    Syria — Muslim 90%

    Tajikistan — Muslim 90%

    Turkey — Muslim 99.8%

    United Arab Emirates — Muslim 96%

    100% will usher in the peace of ‘Dar-es-Salaam’ — the Islamic House of Peace. Here there’s supposed to be peace, because everybody is a Muslim, the Madrasas are the only schools, and the Koran is the only word, such as in:

    Afghanistan — Muslim 100%

    Saudi Arabia — Muslim 100%

    Somalia — Muslim 100%

    Yemen — Muslim 100%

    Unfortunately, peace is never achieved, as in these 100% states the most radical Muslims intimidate and spew hatred, and satisfy their blood lust by killing less radical Muslims, for a variety of reasons. Then you have BOKO HARAM, ISIS..Islam with a hall pass!!!
