Nigerian Shi’ites Massively Donate Blood To Save Others Before Police Shed It Needlessly

Shi’ite members of the Islamic Movement in Nigeria trooped out to massively donate blood to hospitals across Nigerian cities and towns to save the lives of other Nigerians before the Nigerian police force unnecessarily shed theirs and cut short their own lives. It was ironic as they donate blood even as the police threatens to spill theirs. They attempt to save the lives of Nigerians just as the police are determined to terminate their own. Rather unfortunately, people are not talking against this ironic injustice. The government is labelling them…

Already, in the…

Buhari’s Invitation Of Shi’ites To Terrorism By Femi Aribisala

THE decision of the Nigerian government to proscribe the Shiite Islamic Movement of Nigeria, IMN, and to declare it officially as a terrorist organisation is a catastrophic blunder. In the first instance, the decision is illegal and unconstitutional. It is a blatant infringement on the freedom of religion guaranteed under the Nigerian Constitution. But even more than this, it is an open invitation to another chapter of terrorism in Nigeria. For a country already groaning under the travails of the murderous Boko Haram and the marauding herdsmen, this is certainly…
