“Between Dec. 12-14 2015 soldiers carried out mass slaughter of hundreds of men, women and children #Shiites in Zaria, Kaduna State. Our investigation revealed how the Nigerian military burned people alive, razed buildings and dumped victims’ bodies in mass graves.” – Amnesty International
What happened at Zaria, Northern Nigeria, was just not a killing. It was a brutal and inhuman slaughter of 1000+ innocent and defenseless children, women and men between 12th – 14th December, 2015. They shot, they bombed, they stabbed, they burnt, they raped and they buried Shia children alive in Mando mass grave. It was a genocide sponsored and financed by the Saudi regime and as the Saudi crown prince Mohammed bin Salman boasted “to cripple Iran influence in Africa”. When President Buhari went to Qatar after the Zaria genocide, he uttered the same thing.
The following is the casualty breakdown of the Zaria Genocide:
🔰548 men murdered
🔰297 women murdered
🔰193 children murdered
🔰23 pregnant women murdered
🔰39 families were wiped out completely from existence
🔰The iconic Zaria Husseiniyah was bombed and totally destroyed
🔰Dozens of residences were bombed, razed and totally destroyed by these rampaging Nigerian soldiers, and that included the residence of Sheikh Ibraheem Zakzaky
🔰Thousands were maimed, some were left with life threatening injuries. Dozens still carry shrapnels and bullets in their bodies three years on and counting. In the latter category is the injured wife of Sheikh Zakzaky.
🔰More than 200 members of the Islamic Movement were illegally detained in various prisons and secret detention centers and are fraudulently being charged with culpable homicide!
The Zaria genocide was not just a few days event, it was an evil imperialist agenda backed by the West. It was planned in Tel Aviv, financed by Saudi Arabia, executed by the paid Saudi agents in Nigeria and supervised by the Buhari government.
“Since a massacre of over 350 IMN supporters which took place in Zaria in 2015, the Nigerian authorities have consistently sent in the military to respond to IMN protests or marches. This strategy appears to be at least partly to blame for the bloodshed witnessed 40 days ago.” – Amnesty International (on 10th December, 2018, on Human Rights Day)
Just last month the Nigerian army brutally slaughtered more than 60 #Arbaeen mourners in Abuja in broad daylight. Those killed included women and children.
Recently #BokoHaram terrorists massacred armed Nigerian army in Matele and they killed more than 200 soldiers. The soldiers complained that BokoHaram terrorists came with Rocket propelled grenades (RPG) which they do not have. But when the Nigerian army attacked the residence of Sheikh Ibraheem Zakzaky they came with Rocket Propelled Grenades (RPG). Hear from Amnesty International:
“Dec. 12-14, 2015: After soldiers stormed Zaria compound of IMN leader Sheik Ibraheem El Zakzaky there were dead bodies in rooms and also in the courtyard. Soldiers threw #Grenades inside other part of the compound that was full of children and women. #Shiites #Nigeria.”
Sheikh Ibraheem Zakzaky is the antithesis of murderous Wahhabi terrorism in Africa, the main reason why the Saudi regime and all bloodthirsty Wahhabi barbarians hate him. He is the biggest supporter of the Palestinian cause on the African continent, the main reason why the Israeli regime and Global Zionism hate him. Sheikh Zakzaky is against the looting and plundering of African resources by the arrogant West and their African lackeys, the main reason why Western imperialism and corrupt African leaders hate him.
President Buhari, governor Elrufai, Commander Buratai and their gang did everything humanly possible to bury the Zaria genocide but they woefully failed. Massive campaigns of calumny and demonization against Sheikh Zakzaky, the Islamic Movement in Nigeria and Shia Islam were launched. They are the ones killing innocent civilians, but they tried to brand the innocent children and women that they are killing as “terrorists”! The mass slaughter of hundreds of men, women and children by the soldiers in Zaria can never be buried with the mass graves. There must be justice for the over a thousand innocent and defenseless civilians brutally murdered by these bloodthirsty Wahhabi barbarians.
On a final note, heartfelt condolences to the families of victims of the brutal and inhuman Zaria genocide.
