Nigerians React To The “Joke” Declaring Islamic Movt As Terrorist Group

Nigerians took to the social media to profoundly condemn the move by the Buhari government to declare the Islamic Movement in Nigeria as a terrorist group, with some describing it as a huge joke.

A lot of Nigerians saw it as fallacious that a Movement with no tract records of terrorist attacks would be designated as one while certain groups with deadly historical antecedent resulting in the death of thousands of citizens would not only be so designated, but protected and promoted by the Buhari government.

Others believe that this hasty order without facts only point to the fact that the government is desperate, and could indeed do anything to smear the name of the Islamic Movement, including killing its own security agents if it would lead to indelibly labelling the Islamic Movement as terrorist organization.

Below are the excerpts of some quotes about the “joke”:

“Zakzaky is known to all of us, politician visited him to beg for votes, no arms has been traced to him. No harm has been done to the nation by him.” – Hon. Ebenezer Oyetakin

..You killed thousands of his followers including women and children over the last four years. Now u proscribe his IMN simply because they insist on his release and demonstrated in the streets.U did all this to him and yet he still stands tall.Can’t you see that u have failed?2/
~Femi Fani Kayode

..We Christians of Nigeria will never forget the way in which Ibrahim El Zak Zaky and his Shia Muslims protected and assisted our brothers and sisters in the norty over the years when the salafist, wahabbi Sunni fundamentalists slaughtered us like flies.3/
