– Thousands of Students storm NASS #Abuja to demand for the release of Sheik Elzakzaky
– Our Freedom Is Not Complete Without The Freedom Of Shaikh Zakzaky
The unprecedented calamity in the history of Nigeria as a “Nation”, the Killing of Muslims in Zaria (1000+) will never be forgotten.
United Nations Organization made a declaration in its Charter in 1945 for the guarantee of these three basic rights: the right to life as sanctity, the right to human dignity and the right to own private property.
The Nigerian constitution devoted the whole Chapter IV to Human and other citizens’ rights, including freedom of conscience, the right to choose your religion, freedom of association, freedom of movement and the right to fair hearing.
It is known to the world that Shaikh Zakzaky, and his wife Zeenah Ibraheem, have been in detention without charge for nearly two years following a brutal crackdown on his supporters by the Nigerian Army in which soldiers slaughtered hundreds of men,women and children in Zaria. Shaikh Zakzaky and his wife Zeenah Ibraheem were attacked in their house by the Nigerian Army. Soldiers shot him several times together with his wife and killed his children in cold blood in his presence.
With this, we can boldly say that while democracy is been called a “good faith” universal concept, it’s application in Nigeria has been largely deceitful and a cosmetic nature.
Why did the Nigerian Army, under the pretext of a stage managed “traffic offense”murdered over a thousand people in less than forty eight hours including women and children?
This is the worst affliction this country has so far suffered: armed Nigerian soldiers killing hundreds of students and unarmed fellow civilians outside combat area in a show of great brutality.
The Academic Forum of the Islamic Movement in Nigeria hereby calls on peace lovers to rise against oppression, tyranny and terrorism in Nigeria.
We should denounce these acts of oppression and impunity perpetrated by those in power against Shaikh Zakzaky and the Islamic Movement and in unison, call for his immediate and unconditional release.
