Ahlul Bayt News Agency - Thousands of Members of the Shiite Islamic Movement on Sunday, December 13, 2015, staged a street protest condemning the brutal killing of their members.
Reports say over 25 armless members of the movement were martyred during the raid on the Shiite's strong hold on Sunday, December 13, 2015.
Informed Newspapers reported that the wife and son of the Shiite leader, Sayyid Ibraheem Zakzaky were also martyred during the raid.
This is coming on the heels of the alleged assassination attempt on the life of the Chief of Army Staff, Lieutenant General Tukur Buratai.
The Nigeria Army through its spokesman, Colonel Sani Usman ridiculously accused the armless Shiite Muslims saying “The sect, numbering hundreds and carrying dangerous weapons!!, barricaded the roads with bonfires, heavy stones and tyres. They refused all entreaties to disperse and then started firing and pelting the convoy with dangerous objects.”
The Islamic Movement on its part strongly denied the allegations, as every body can confirm it from the videos and pictures published from the scene widely on websites and social nets.
The spokesperson of the Islamic Movement, Ibrahim Musa has accused the Federal Government of planning to wipe out the Shiite and called on well-meaning Nigerians and the International community to come to the aid of the group.
Reports say the protests were held simultaneously in Bauchi, Potiskum in Yobe State and Birnin Gwari in Kaduna State
Between media and Hussainiyya attacks_ the Inside story
A Hausa adage has it that "the truth requires no flattery" which means you don't need to buttress your point with an unnecessary casuistry when it comes telling the truth.
A Hausa also has it that a truthful stomach is impervious to stabbing. I am not surprised by how the mainstream media are trying to distort the Zaria incidents at Hussainiyya Baqiyyatullah and Gyallesu where soldiers opened fire at brothers and sisters as they are always used to targeting the members of the Islamic Movement in Nigeria.
As of now there are no exact figures as to the casualties of the massacre, but it is proven that countless numbers of people are believed to have been martyred by the military. Apart from attacking Hussainiyya Baqiyyatullah and Gyallesu, there reached us another news that the military is attacking the Graveyard of the Martyrs which lies along Jos road.
But one thing I know for sure is people are not fool and they know are with watching the event wisely. People watch and read news and once they verify news they will realise the truth of the matter.
