It has come to the notice of the Islamic Movement in Nigeria that there was a secret security meeting held at the behest of Kaduna state government, wherein they planned to cause mayhem on Monday 29/07/2019 ostensibly to prevent the Kaduna state high court from sitting to determine the bail application of Sheikh Zakzaky. The sad thing is that this unruly behaviour is to be done in our name.
According to this diabolic plot, some security agencies will draft their men to Kaduna in the early hours of Monday, dressed like Muslim brothers of the Islamic Movement, out to forcibly rescue Sheikh Zakzaky from illegal detention.
The Islamic Movement in Nigeria wishes to inform the general public and all well-meaning Nigerians that any group of persons seen marching tomorrow before the court proceedings are not from the Islamic Movement in Nigeria. They are only acting the script from that Zaria security meeting. We therefore urge the general public to disregard them.
We also want the public to disregard the various social media messages being circulated that ‘the Shiites’ will cause mayhem tomorrow Monday. We believe all these are the handiwork of the security agents bent on falsely portraying the Islamic Movement as a violent group at all costs.
We once again reiterate our call for the immediate release of Sheikh Ibraheem Zakzaky and his wife Malama Zeenah Ibrahim from illegal incarceration.
