The leader of the Islamic Movement in Nigeria, Sheikh Ibraheem Zakzaky had cautioned members of the Movement just a few weeks before the Zaria massacre to beware of “contractors of infighting” within the Movement.
According to the Sheikh, some eight people had been given a twenty-five million Naira (N25m) contract each, to infiltrate the Movement and cause infighting severe enough to cause commotion and bloodshed.
He said the eight people will cause infighting and “that will be used as an excuse to shoot and kill some people.”

This warning was again repeated a few days before the massacre, when he said the number of those given the contract had been increased, and that they were spread in various places including seven in Sokoto, three in Kano and Katsina each, and one each in Niger and Jos and so on and so forth.
The Sheikh had prayed that may those involved in the plots die before us!
