Soldiers on red alert against us – Shi’ite leader
The leader of the Islamic Movement in Nigeria, popularly known as Shi’ite, Sheikh Ibraheem Zakzaky, on Wednesday raised alarm that the military after allegedly killing his 33 followers at a recent procession has again put soldiers on red alert against the group.
El-Zakzaky made the statement at the end of Nahjul Balagha study session at the Hussainiyyah Baqiyyatullah, Zaria.
The Nigerian Army has however dismissed the allegation, saying there was no such directive.
El-Zakzaky said, “The Nigerian military after killing innocent people in Zaria at the recent Quds Day procession has now gone on the defensive and therefore spreading rumour that the “Shi’ites” were going to avenge the killing of their members.
“The military having woefully failed in its plan has stationed all barracks on red alert to further unleash more violence and spill innocent blood.
“We will not be surprised if the military decides to detonate bombs or even kill some of its personnel accuse the “Shi’ites” of taking revenge. The military had been doing this all over in the name of Boko Haram.”
