Shi’ites: Injustice To One Is Injustice To All

The Federal Government has proffered both official and unofficial explanations for proscribing the Ibraheem El Zakzaky-led Islamic Movement in Nigeria, otherwise known as the Shi’ites. None of which, to me, makes any sense. With these explanations, this government has grossly insulted our intelligence. As they say in the United States, “Don’t pee on my foot and say it is rain.” The total disdain of the government for human rights and rule of law is blatantly done with Gestapo’s impunity and wantonness. The fact that the due process violation was cloaked…

Nigeria And The Sheikh Zakzaky Challenge

Things seem relatively calm on the endless altercation between the Federal Government and leader of the Islamic Movement in Nigeria, Sheikh el-Zakzaky, currently. Since the exchange of fireworks that followed the cleric’s return to Nigeria alongside his wife last week, both parties have taken what seems to be a well-advised ceasefire off the series of accusations and the counter accusations that attended the cleric’s failed trip to India. The current peace the nation has from the three-year-old situation between the government and Sheikh el-Zakzaky is indeed one that is heart-warming.…

The Botched Attempt To Assassinate Sheikh Zakzaky In Foreign Land

When Sheikh Ibraheem Zakzaky obtained a favourable ruling in his application for medical leave to seek medical treatment for his numerous ailments in India, little did he realize that he had inadvertently fallen for a trap that was to lead to his attempted assassination. Being a man of God, whose reliance on Allah is legendary, Allah didn’t fail him. At the thick of the heinous attacks on his residence, he had an opportunity to run away. He didn’t. His famous quote then was “only God can deliver me!” He did…

The Rantings Are Not Loud Enough

Having failed to find Sheikh Zakzaky to be a helpless lamb for slaughter in India, the Federal Government of Nigeria has resorted to campaign of calumny, character assassination through illogical allegations that can easily be seen by everyone as rantings aimed at demonizing the revered personality. Such allegations include request for his passport, which to them was an ulterior motive of wanting to run away and seek for assylum in India or any other country. Another absurd allegation was an unruly behavior by his refusal to be treated by the…
