Few hours ago, a vacation Judge of the Federal High Court, Abuja, Justice Nkeoye Maha issued an order, declaring the activities of Shia Islam (Shiites) in any part of Nigeria as “Acts of terrorism and Illegality”.
Recall that, Shiites’ Leader and Founder of the Islamic Movement in Nigeria was arrested in December 2015, and has been in detention till date. Despite Court Verdicts ordering his release, the Federal Government has cited security concerns as reasons Ibrahim Yaqoub El Zakzaky cannot be released.
Earlier this week, Hundreds of Armed Shiites Loyalist stormed the streets of Abuja in violent protest, and killed a Deputy Police Commissioner, DCP Umar, who was in charge of Operations at the Federal Capital Territory Police Command. A Channels TV Reporter was also killed in the violent engagement.
As you read this, Shiites have committed the act of treason by creating a parallel Government in Nigeria. They have an organized Government and Military. Their Caliphate has grown stronger especially with the incarceration of their Leader.
Shia Islam is one of the two main branches of Islam. It holds that the Islamic Prophet Muhammad designated Ali ibn Abi Talib as his successor and the Imam (leader) after him, most notably at the event of Ghadir Khumm, but was prevented from the caliphate. This view primarily contrasts with that of Sunni Islam (where President Buhari belongs), whose adherents believe that Muhammad did not appoint a successor and consider Abu Bakr, who they claim was appointed caliph by a small group of Muslims at Saqifah, to be the first rightful caliph after the Prophet.
El Zakzaky believes that the establishment of a Republic along similar Religious lines in Nigeria must be achieved by fire and by force. The Government of the day is aware of this plan, and will risk anything to have El Zakzaky rot in jail.
Few days back, the Iranian Government called on the Federal Government of Nigeria to send El Zakzaky to Iran for Medical treatment. Just so you know, Iran is the World’s Leading State Sponsor of Global Terrorism. This revelation was made by the U.S. Department of State. Sadly, Iran has held this dubious and disgusting distinction for so many years now, and shows no sign of relinquishing the title.
He will either remain a Global Terrorism Remote in Iran, or come back to Nigeria with Biological Grenades in his Intestine. Period.
El Zakzaky and his deadly Shiites group will be worse than Boko Haram if allowed to thrive.
See how they (Boko Haram) started and tell me the difference between the Group and Shiites.
Mohammed Yusuf founded the sect that became known as Boko Haram in 2002 in Maiduguri, the capital of the north-eastern state of Borno. He established a religious complex and school that attracted poor Muslim families from across Nigeria and neighbouring Countries. The center had the political goal of “creating an Islamic state”, and became a recruitment ground for Jihadists. By denouncing the police and state corruption, Yusuf attracted followers from unemployed youths. He is reported to have used the existing infrastructure in Borno of the Izala Society, a popular conservative Islamic sect to recruit members, before breaking away to form his own faction. The Izala were originally welcomed into government, along with people sympathetic to Yusuf.
Boko Haram conducted its operations more or less peacefully during the first seven years of its existence, withdrawing from society into remote north-eastern areas.
The government repeatedly ignored warnings about the increasingly militant character of the organization. The Council of Ulama advised the government and the Nigerian Television Authority not to broadcast Yusuf’s preaching, but their warnings were ignored. Yusuf’s arrest elevated him to Hero Status. Borno’s Deputy Governor Alhaji Dibal has reportedly claimed that al-Qaeda had ties with Boko Haram, but broke them when they decided that Yusuf was an unreliable person. Stephen Davis, a former Anglican Clergyman who has negotiated with Boko Haram many times blames Local Nigerian Politicians who support local bandits like Boko Haram in order for them to make life difficult for their political opponents.
In particular, Davis has blamed the former governor of Borno State Ali Modu Sheriff, who initially supported Boko Haram, but no longer needed them after the 2007 elections and stopped funding them. Sheriff denies the accusations.
Boko Haram’s attacks consist of suicide bombers as well as conventional armed assaults on both civilian and military targets. Following the 2014 kidnapping, a majority of Boko Haram’s suicide bombers are female; some are as young as seven years old. Boko Haram Jihadists rely on stealth blend into local communities, or hiding in the vast countryside. Critics accuse the Nigerian military of not properly equipping its soldiers to fight Boko Haram
Go to war. Period. Shiites Followers have poisoned minds and brains. They are like the Zombies on a lonely desert; all they’ve got to offer are blood-thirsty claws. Release their Leader, and their morale is boosted. Keep detaining their Leader in their watchful eyes, and they will bring War to Nigeria. Today is 27th July, 2019, mark my words.
Those agitating for the release of El Zakzaky are shameless hypocrites. El Zakzaky is a touch-sensitive time-bomb, and should be kept away from where humans live. He is planting time-bombs among humans, and should be sent to Hades.
The more you detain him, the more you give Iran and her counterparts enough time to plan a deadly invasion.
The group has been proscribed, and adherents who are still holding on to the deadly believes and practices should be treated as Terrorists!
This is Nigeria, the only Country we have.
Act! Buhari, act!
