The Islamic Movement in Nigeria (IMN) Wednesday purportedly claimed to have uncovered plans by the certain elements in the country to kill its leader Sheikh Ibraheem Zakzaky as well as attacking members of the sect in several cities of Northern Nigeria
IMN alleged that the planned scheme will start “immediately after a crucial and highly important “national announcement” is made in the next coming days or possibly weeks. Those who hatched the plan hope to cash on the political uncertainty they hope the national announcement will generate to finish off their genocidal plans they started years back that culminated in the December 2015 attacks. By carrying out their evil plan of killing our leader and spilling the blood of innocent civilians, they hope to exterminate the Movement once and for all”.
In a press release by Ibrahim Musa, the sect further claimed to be aware that troops have been strategically and massively stationed in the major cities this operation will be carried out; waiting for the day the “special announcement” will be made so that they carry out the killing of innocent lives.
It called on the international community to prevail upon the Federal Government to call its security agents to order while insinuating that security agents seem not satisfied with the killing of “over a thousand souls they massacred in Zaria in December 2015”.
The assassination of Sheikh Zakzaky and the murder of members of IMN, it further said, will in no way benefit Nigeria and Nigerians, therefore urge them to urgently terminate the genocidal scheme.
“We will remain committed to the peaceful ways of getting justice done to the victims of Zaria massacre carried out by the Army in Zaria. We will, therefore, reiterate our demand for the immediate release of our Leader Sheikh Ibraheem Zakzaky as directed by a federal high court Abuja”, he said.
