El-Zakzaky: Shiites speaks on ‘attack’ on Nigerian states

The Islamic Movement in Nigeria, IMN, on Sunday demanded for the release of its leader, Ibrahim El-Zakzaky and his wife, Zeenat.

It said there was no plans to attack Nigerian states in order to press home its demands.

The South West Coordinator, IMN, Muftau Zakariya, on Sunday, advised residents to go about their normal activities.

He told Vanguard: “What we are seeking for is the release of our leader, Ibrahim El-Zakzaky and his wife. That is all. We have never taken arms against the law enforcement agencies.

“Rather they are the one that have continued to use arms against us. We are law abiding citizens and we believe in the 1999 constitution of Nigeria.

“So we urge everyone in South West to disregard any information claiming we are planning to attack government facilities.”

Meanwhile, the military Special Task Force (STF) in charge of security in Plateau said it had taken steps to avoid any protest by Shiites.
