There was a huge turnout yesterday in Kaduna as the third year anniversary of the Zaria massacre seminar series took place at the Fuciyyah School, Kaduna.
Like the previous meetings in Yola, Jalingo and other places, the seminar has as its theme: “Prospects, Problems & Progress of the Free Zakzaky Campaign Three Years On.”
It was anchored by Malam Muhammad Awwal and had in attendance the Chairman of the Free Zakzaky Campaign Committee, Sheikh Abdulrahaman Yola and many other members of the Campaign Committee including Dr. Shuaibu.
Others who graced the occasion included Malam Aliyu Tirmizi, Malam Aliyu Bakin ruwa, Malam Awwal Tudun Wada, Engr Yunus Poly and Malam Muhammad Sarkin Malamai. Also in attendance were Malama Jamila Mukhtar Sahabi, Malama Aisha Radiyallahu and many others.
In his brief remarks at the moment, Sheikh Abdulrahaman traced the timeline of events during the massacre and its aftermath and how the Campaign Committee has been able to wrestle the Federal Government to the ground. “We have been able to defeat the government in its courts in Abuja and Kaduna,” he said.
He further said that we have been able to remain steadfast on course on the track Sheikh Zakzaky had placed us in spite of the treacherous machinations of the government and its agents within and outside the Movement. “No activity or program ever stopped since December 2015 in all places and the campaign to free Sheikh Zakzaky had continued on all fronts with renewed vigour,” he added.
In his own remarks, Dr. Shuaibu drew the attention of the brothers and sisters present to the various plots of the enemy. “They seek to eliminate Sheikh and completely wipe out the Movement,” he said. Citing several examples, he showed how they have been consistent only in trying to divide and rule, explaining that they so much desire to destroy the Movement from all angles, including spoiling morals, mutual respect and spirit of brotherhood that members of the Movement have come to be characterised with over time.
He called on members to fear Allah and realize that ours is a religious Movement for which we will be called to account before Allah on the day of judgement.
There were questions and answers by the audience and many members talked about the progress and challenges facing the campaign to free our leader and others still being unjustifiably held. Solutions were proffered and taken.
There were also artists who kept the place alive with Islamic Songs.
Overall, it was a very successful and productive seminar to the shame of detractors.
