The Nigeria Intervention Movement (NIM) has severely criticized the Buhari-led Federal Government for the incessant harassment of the Islamic Movement in Abuja.
The NIM, which is headed by a former President of the Nigerian Bar Association, Dr. Olisa Agbakoba (SAN), and a former presidential candidate, Dr. Abdujalil Tafawa-Balewa, said it would hold a rally in solidarity with them.
The movement said this in a statement by its Deputy-Director General, Mallam Nasser Kura, adding that trigger-happy policemen must be arrested.
The statement read in part, “We hereby demand that indicted trigger happy police operatives involved in this unfortunate cruelty and criminality be immediately brought to book and withdrawn from further confronting the peaceful protest of the Islamic Movement.”
The NIM also demanded an apology and compensation for members of the Movement.
