Vision FM Must Desist From Continued Hate Campaign Against The Islamic Movement In Nigeria

We have observed series of hate campaigns against the Islamic Movement in Nigeria being aired by an Abuja-based FM radio station, Vision FM, in collaboration with some FM radio stations in some selected states. This has gone on in the past week under the guise of airing a documentary by some so-called Shia scholars.

Such mischievous hate campaigns are potentially inciting, capable…

Elrufai Begs Christians For Support After Bragging That He Doesn’t Need Their Votes

Kaduna State governor, Nasiru Elrufai has shamelessly met Pastors from different Churches in Kaduna State yesterday at the Hotel Seventeen to beg them to support his sinking re-election bid, barely one month after he arrogantly said that even if the Pope was his running mate, Christians in Kaduna won’t vote for him.

Even as the Boko Haram insurgencypersists in the north, peaceful demonstrations by the Islamic Movement of Nigeria (IMN) sparked a recent round of state repression. In late October, protests in and around the capital left at least 45 IMN members dead and more than another 100 wounded after Nigerian security forces used automatic weapons to disperse the crowds. Government officials claim…
