IMN Kids Disappointed in Nigerian Government over Killing of Their Parents ‎

Children of the Islamic Movement in Nigeria (IMN) whose parent were allegedly killed by the Nigerian Army in December 2015 have expressed disappointment   in the Nigerian government for denying them the right to parental love and care as they grow.


This was the expression of Mujahid Ibrahim,‎ a pupil of Fudiyya Islamic Schools Foundation Kaduna‎, who led other pupils‎ during a peaceful protest march on monday, in calling for the unconditional release of Sheikh Ibraheem Zakzaky.

The pupils who came from various schools across Kaduna staged the peaceful protest from the gate of Kaduna Polytechnic to the center of Tudun Wada in Kaduna metropolis.

The children accused the Nigerian government of impunity for the killing of their parents saying “We wonder what moral lessons the government in imparting on the coming generation with these kinds of act of impunity that could only be described as state terrorism”.

He added that not less than sixty children have been born by mothers whose husbands were killed in the incident, “over sixty children have so far been born, including a set of twins, since the unfortunate massacre whose parents have all been killed by the Nigerian Army for no justifiable reason.

“It behooves on us to ask what these innocent children have done to be denied seeing their parents in life. Definitely this is a big crime against humanity that remains unforgivable”.

He therefore, called for the release of the leader of the Movement and all those in detention “We condemn the government and Nigerian Army brutality and their arrogant display of inhumanity against us and call for the release of all our members. Most importantly we demand the immediate and unconditional release of our leader Sheikh Ibraheem Zakzaky.”

It would be recalled that in December last year the motorcade of the Chief of Army Staff COAS, Lt. Gen Tukur Buratai was allegedly blocked by members of the Islamic Movement in Nigeria which led to the killings and detention of many members of the Movement including the leader Sheikh Ibraheem Zakzaky and his wife.

The Kaduna state Governor Nsair El-rufai has since inaugurated a judicial Commission of Inquiry to investigate the remote courses of the incident. Members of the Movement have threatened boycotting the Commission if their leader is not released.

Meanwhile the commission has adjourned sitting for the fourth time in efforts to allow the counsel to the Islamic Movement meet with the leader.
