Members of the Sisters Forum of Islamic Movement in Nigeria (IMN) on Monday renewed their call on Federal Government to respect the court order by releasing the leader of the Islamic Movement, Sheikh Ibraheem Zakzaky and his wife, Zeenatuddeen Ibraheem from detention detention.
This was contained in a passionate address by one of the prominent members of the forum, Malama Jummai Korofi while addressing journalists in Kaduna to mark three years of the Zaria massacre during which over a thousand members of the Movement were brutally killed by the Army in Zaria and the continued detention of Sheikh Zakzaky ever since.
Malama Jummai explained that a total of 287 women, 197 children, 23 pregnant women were among the more than 1,000 people that were horrifically killed by the soldiers including four of her own sons, (two university graduates and two other undergraduates)
Speaking further, she lamented that Sheikh Zakzaky, his wife and other members of the movement have been in detention since the horrendous attacks by the army three years ago.
She is one of the lucky survivors having escaped with many fatal injuries that had left several pieces of shrapnel in her body three years on in addition to the painful loss of her four sons.
The sisters’ Forum also condemned the Kaduna state governor, Nasir Elrufai for using mass killing of the members of the Movement in the state to campaign for his reelection.
