Sheikh Zakzaky hits back at Nigerian leaders – You can’t scare us! You are reprobates, whose interest is only to amass billions!

May Allah destroy you for us! We don’t need you at all. We don’t think you will ever change for good.

Who will ever scare us? You? By God! You are too inconsequential.

You who are evil doers? Transgressors! Accursed! People with hardened hearts?

Is it you that will ever frighten us? With what will you scare us?
