Enforced Disappearances: Military Must Come Out clear, Not Seek To Attenuate Reports

There were news items in many mainstream media outlets today that seek to cover a press statement issued by Amnesty International as part of activities marking the International Day of the Victims of Enforced Disappearances.
While the Amnesty statement was loud and clear, the reports in the press however seeks to adulterate the Amnesty demand. Undoubtedly, it is the Military implants in media places doing this.
They included some purulent words and ideas which were not part of what Amnesty put out in an attempt to rubbish and dilute what is being intended. All the talk about “firebrand cleric” and “IMN has been in conflict with the Nigerian government for years” were deliberate and wicked insertions by paid agents in the mainstream media to try explaining the cases of enforced disappearances being highlighted.
For the avoidance of doubts, neither Sheikh Zakzaky nor the Islamic Movement in Nigeria has been in conflict with anyone. Sheikh Zakzaky leads a grassroot mass Movement that cuts across traditional fault lines in Nigeria’s geo-tribal and faith polity. If it were all about “firebrand” or “conflict” and violence, he wouldn’t have garnered the massive support he enjoys despite the use of the full might of the state against him. It is this which is actually what makes the authorities uncomfortable with the Movement.
What the government and its military should be focused on at this material point in time is to explain what they did to the hundreds of victims of enforced disappearances Amnesty highlighted. We have produced all necessary evidence including names, photographs, ages, contact of relations and where/when each was last seen according to international standards.
The military must account for these victims. How many did it kill and secretly buried in mass graves? How many are they still detaining in secret detention facilities across the country?
The Islamic Movement in Nigeria reiterates its demand for the immediate release of all of its members being detained, including those in military and other detention facilities across the country. We also demand the handing over of all corpses of those the military killed, including those they hurriedly buried in attempt to hide their heinous crime, so that their identities are known, their relatives identified and the bodies handed over for proper burial rites according to Islamic injunctions.
Finally, we join Amnesty International in solemnly marking this day and in calling on the Nigerian authorities to come out clear on all cases of enforced disappearances and bring all those suspected of criminal responsibility to justice.

Amnesty International Says Army Must Investigate Disappearance Of IMN Members, Others

By Abdulmumin Giwa
Amnesty International has called on the Nigerian government to investigate the unexplained disappearances of members of the Islamic Movement in Nigeria (IMN) following details of over 600 missing persons made available to the rights group.
This was stated by the Amnesty International today as it commemorates this year’s International Day of the Disappeared in Abuja.
“Amnesty International is calling on the Nigerian authorities to investigate all cases of enforced disappearances and bring all those suspected of criminal responsibility to justice,” the group said in a statement.
“According to figures provided by the Islamic Movement of Nigeria (IMN), at least 600 of their members’ whereabouts is not known.”
Over 1000 members of the IMN might have been killed in December 2015 when the Nigerian Army following a claimed traffic misunderstanding launched a killing spree on members of the Movement for almost 48 hours.
Several properties of the IMN including worship places, cemetery and residence of the leader Sheikh Ibraheem Zakzkay were demolished and some of its members tortured or burned alive by the Army.
Amnesty has earlier called on the Nigerian Army to come clean on the Zaria massacre when it revealed satellite footages showing evidences of possible mass grave forcing the Kaduna state government to reveal to a Judicial Commission of Inquiry (JCI) investigating the massacre that along with the army, it mass buried 347 IMN members at Mando village in Kaduna.
The government had been condemned of violating local, international as well as religious laws by mass burying victims of the Zaria massacre to hide its heinous crimes against humanity by several other reputable rights groups across the globe.
Prior to that, the IMN had placed advertorials carrying over 800 names and profiles of missing persons in the news dailies as families are still searching for their loved ones.
On its side the Army attempted hiding its role in the Zaria massacre when the Chief of Army Staff (COAS) Lt. Gen. Tukur Buratai told the National Human Rights Commission in Abuja that only seven people were killed when he made his way through a claimed road blockage mounted by the IMN members.
Following an independent investigation by the Amnesty International it revealed in its report that the army cordoned off the IMN targets it attacked for days and washed off blood stains and picked up bullet shells in attempt to hide its crimes against humanity.
In its response to the Amnesty report on Zaria massacre and other major human rights violations and disregard to its rule of engagement the Army harshly accused the Amnesty International of not being fair to it.
This followed an organized mob action on the Amnesty office in Abuja by alleged sponsored groups condemning the Amnesty for being hard on the Nigerian Army.
It was subsequently followed by another protest and rally supporting the Amnesty and calling on it to continue with its good work of exposing the excesses of the army on innocent people in the country organized by the Concerned Nigerians group.
The Amnesty also drew attention to innocent people that have disappeared after military actions in the name of fighting Boko Haram saying they are “often seized by the military after being accused of affiliation to the armed group Boko Haram”.
Amnesty said hundreds of other civilians had disappeared in the restive northeast during the jihadist group’s brutal eight-year insurgency. Many more are being held illegally in “secret detention”, it stated.
“The families of the victims of enforced disappearance have already waited too long for answers,” Amnesty’s statement said. “They deserve justice, truth and reparation now.”

Nigerian Army Frets And Lies Following IMN Petition To US Government

COAS Lt. Gen Tukur BurataiFollowing the petition written to the US government by the Islamic Movement in Nigeria against the proposed sale of weapons to the current Nigerian government because of the military’s abysmal human rights records, the military through its spokesman has come out in a state of fret and irritation on BBC Hausa service to lie about the matter.
Commenting on the suspended arms deal worth $593m, Brig Gen Sani Kukasheka went on air to give the false impression that the deal was on. According to him, the deal would have been long completed but for some “unscrupulous persons” who worked to stop the sale of the weapons to Nigeria. Answering questions on whether it was not the very poor human rights records of the military against civilian population that made people he called unscrupulous show their opposition to such deal, Kukasheka swept aside what he called “mere allegations,” insisting that a non-governmental group should not have taken it upon itself to write a letter to a President opposing the sale of weapons to the country. “If weapons are not sold to us to fight, where would that take us?” He quibbled.
Having effectively dodged to comment on use of the weapons against civilian population, he rolled out the lies, saying that weapons would now be sold to Nigeria by the US and other governments.
When the BBC reporter drew his attention to the petition written by the IMN against the sale since weapons sold to the government are being used against unarmed citizens, he again was evasive preferring to blackmail IMN members, whom he said were “jobless bunch whose major preoccupation each morning was to be on social media criticising.” According to him, there were some good members of the group “who are obedient and don’t associate themselves with all that,” in clear reference to their moles within.
What was obvious in all his babbling on BBC was that the military was upset by the petition written by the IMN, urging the US government not to sell weapons and other military hardware to Nigeria because these weapons eventually end up being used to kill innocent citizens rather than to fight enemies.
The only indication he made to suggest the extent of the impact of the petition was were he said the worries and concerns raised by the petition are being looked at and would be redressed.
Earlier, the IMN had expressed doubts and concerns on the true intention of the Presidential Investigation Panel. In its letter to the acting President, IMN had correctly said that “it would appear that setting up of this panel may be related to a quick attempt at convincing (or more approximately deceiving) the US government into selling weapons to it.” With this recent ranting by the Brigadier, it would appear that IMN was right after all.
Already, there is a lot of opposition to the sale of weapons especially in the US congress, to a military with a track record of civilian massacres, a military that has repeatedly turned such weapons against its own citizens in Zaki biam, Odi, Zaria, Enugu, Onitsha, Aba, Baga and even IDP camps among other places.

Who is more irresponsible, Ohanaeze Ndigbo or NEF?

nigerian mapBy Abdulmumin Giwa
Media reports have said that the Northern Elders Forum (NEF) has described the Igbo elders under the platform of Ohanaeze Ndigbo as irresponsible for opposing federal government’s move to revoke Nnamdi Kanu’s bail.
It was said that the Northern Elders Forum (NEF) on Sunday condemned Ohanaeze Ndigbo for criticizing the Federal Government’s plan to re-arrest the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu.
The President-General of Ohanaeze Ndigbo, Chief Nnia Nwodo, had earlier accused the Federal Government of double standard and disregard of Kanu’s fundamental human rights, especially against the backdrop of its refusal to arrest the Arewa youths who issued the now-withdrawn Igbo quit notice.
However, Paul Unongo, Chairman of NEF said the northern elders were disappointed that Ohanaeze would make light of a criminal matter.
Unongo argued that Kanu’s case was 100 per cent different from the ultimatum issued by the Arewa youths, stating that there was no basis for comparison.
I really wonder how these so-called northern elders act that I even raised the question as to who is more irresponsible between the northern elders and the Igbo elders. Who is actually speaking for and protecting the interest of his people? Is it the northern elders or the Igbo elders?
I read a lot of comments full of various sectional and tribal sentiments on this matter to the extent that I could not help questioning the integrity of the Northern Elders Forum in particular who hardly speak in the interest of the northern people but for what looks more like political and personal whims.
In December 2015 a very ugly incident took place in Zaria where a claimed traffic disagreement between some members of the Islamic Movement in Nigeria (IMN) and the entourage of the Chief of Army Staff (COAS) took place. This resulted in wanton and incessant killing of the IMN members where over 1000 men, women and children were extra-judicially murdered by the Nigerian Army.
Some were burned alive by the army, some tortured to death all in a period of about 24 hours within which the worship centers of the IMN, the residence of their leader Sheikh Ibraheem Zakzaky, their cemetery and the residence of the mother of the IMN leader were all destroyed by a coalition of the Army and the Kaduna state government. Most of those killed were youths studying in universities.
The victims were buried in mass graves in violation of all known laws whether religious, national or international in a joint operation between the Army and the Kaduna state government. What is worse is that some of them were buried alive as no one was certified dead because the operation was meant to be a secret of hiding the intensity of the genocide.
It is true that the IMN members are mainly Shiites who are a minority Muslim group that suffer all sorts of attacks and blackmail from the majority Sunni Wahhabis in particular. These attacks and castigations include blackmail and inducement of sectarian sentiments such that most of what is heard of about the Shiites is not from the Shiites but from the Wahhabi/Salafi scholars who always propagate lies and rumors about the Shiites.
More so, the IMN is fast growing and virtually all its members were formerly Sunnis who have converted to Shi’a. This they see as a threat to the existence of their Wahhabism which is enjoying the opposite. The Wahhabi scholars among other things are afraid of losing a source of income by allowing Shi’a to grow. Their scholars are used to working hand-in-hand with politicians from who they take their campaigns to their worship centers where they induce all sorts of sentiments in the people and most importantly in return make millions of Naira usually looted from government coffers.
The IMN on the other hand propagates revolutionary ideas that are stern on corruption and injustice. They propagate and call for the implementation of fairness and justice to all irrespective of tribe, section, region or religion. This is more like killing the business of the Wahhabi scholars and their politician friends.
Despite all these group and ideological differences, it is indisputable that the Shiites that were murdered by the Buhari regime in Zaria are northerners and are responsible youths of the north. They are Shiites because they are not part of the delinquent youths of the north neglected by their leaders and left without education or any hope for a good future. They are Shiites because they are university students or engaged in one entrepreneur or the other.
The Shiites youths murdered by the army don’t belong to those groups of neglected youths in the northern communities that are into drug abuse, thugry, robbery, kidnapping and all sorts of societal nuisance. The only function of the neglected youth is to follow politicians chanting slogans and being paid crumbs without any future hope. They are not like the neglected youths of the north that attack communities with knives, daggers, swords and cutlasses inflicting all sorts of injuries on innocent people. They are guided by a responsible leader.
Where were the so-called northern elders when these promising youths were lynched by the regime? What is even worse is that these so-called elders went to justify and shamelessly tell lies before the Judicial Commission of Inquiry (JCI) set up by the Kaduna state government to investigate the Zaria killings.
The irresponsibility of the majority of the northern elders is such that they didn’t see anything wrong with the killing of the IMN members simply because they are Shiites. This form of irresponsibility can never be labeled against elders of other regions.
For instance, despite the nuisance of the Odua People’s Congress (OPC), the then president Chief Olusegun Obasanjo who is their kinsmen never killed them. Former president Goodluck Jonathan never killed the Niger Delta youths, in fact he even defended them despite the economic tragedies they inflicted on Nigeria through their activities. When President Muhammadu Buhari wanted to launch a clampdown on the IPOB the Igbo elders came out including their politicians to speak against it saying they are their sons and daughters and must not be killed.
Back here in the north some of the northern elders are full of praises for the irresponsibility of the Buhari regime that murdered their youths simply because they were Shiites. They do all possible to justify the mass murder concocting all sorts of foolish excuses that don’t hold water to justify their irresponsibility.
When the army under President Jonathan murdered about 34 IMN members including three sons of the leader in July 2014 some of these so-called northern leaders went to condoled the IMN leader and even condemned the army describing them as the ‘Jonathanian Army’ but when the ‘Buharian Army’ murdered over 1000 they hypocritically kept mute and even joined in the action. Who then is more irresponsible, is it the Ohanaeze Indigbo that defend their youths at all cost or the Northern Elders that hypocritically sacrifice their own?

Action Alert: Demand African Union Intervene In Sheikh Zakzaky Case

A call to action has been made to anybody reading this message to take a moment and write an urgent letter to the African Union demanding their immediate intervention in the matter of Sheikh Ibraheem Zakzaky.

Dear Adv. Faith Pansy Tlakula
*Re: Sheikh Zakzaky and the Islamic Movement of Nigeria*
I write with regard to the continued persecution of Sheikh Ibraheem Zakzaky, in particular the continued illegal detention of the Sheikh, his wife Zeenah and hundreds of other IMN members.
You will recall that even the Nigerian courts held that Sheikh Zakzaky’s detention was illegal at the end of last year and demanded the Sheikh’s release. The fact that he and his wife remain in detention, both in need of medical treatment is a stain on Nigeria. The African Union must take immediate action to ensure that this travesty of justice is rectified.
I look forward to your speedy response outlining the actions your office will be taking.
Yours sincerely,

Your name

Please in addition to writing your own letter/e-mail, help to share this campaign call and information widely, with your friends and other interested people.

IMN Writes US Government: Don’t Sell Weapons or Military Hardware to Nigeria

members of the Movement ,massacred by Nigerian Army
The Islamic Movement in Nigeria (IMN) has written a letter of petition to the government of the United States of America (USA) urging them not to sell weapons or any military hardwares to Nigeria.
The letter, which was dated 17th August, 2017 and signed by the head of the Free Zakzaky Campaign Committee, Abdulrahaman Abubakar, cited the appalling human rights record of Nigerian military as the reason for the “vehement objection to the proposed sale of weapons and military hardwares to the government of Nigeria.”
The petition further pointed out that “the military’s human rights record in Nigeria is utterly dismal and the Nigerian government’s commitment to the rule of law is even worse off.” IMN drew the attention of the US government to incessant refusal of the government to acknowledge excesses of the military in handling civilian matters, but even tries to justify them. The Movement cited the examples of the blatant murder of 34 unarmed civilians in Zaria in 2014, including the children of Sheikh Zakzaky, without the government doing anything about it. As if it was not grievous enough, the murderous soldiers returned in December, 2015 with an even more brutal force, resulting in the death of over a thousand innocent citizens. The initial response of the government to this callous disregard for human lives was to say, it was a “military affair.”
IMN pointed out that there is usually no properly conducted inquiries, no prosecutions, no remorse and no public apologies after such acts by the military. Besides shirking in its duties to hold its soldiers to account, the IMN said the government captured its leader and his wife after shooting them at pointblank range, treated them in the most humiliating and denigrating manner before hauling them into incommunicado detention without charges for twenty months. “Even after a Nigerian High Court had ruled that the detention is unconstitutional and ordered their release, the government has continued to contemptuously defy the order.”
The letter therefore called for a complete arms embargo to be placed on the Nigerian military. It also wanted the embargo to be extended to travel bans and other embargoes for senior military and political leaders “until a genuine commitment to the principles of rule of law, justice, fair play and human rights can be demonstrated beyond rhetoric and halfhearted measures by the government.

Buhari have been deliberately misled, please release Sheikh Zakzaky today – Hon. Ebenezer.

free zakzaky 1
It is impossible for me to keep quiet ,when I noticed some form of arrant nonsense, in the name of security reports. I had tried frantically, to assist Government successively ,to define the accurate concept of security threat. However, I am convinced now than ever that the Heads of Security Forces in Nigeria are more subservient to imperialist international order, than the order that can actually lead to National peace, security and emancipation. Iran do not seek and has never seek to hegemonised Nigeria. If anything, Iran try to influence what they considered the most appropriate form of Islamic religion. And this they do through propagation of shared knowledge and not any act of terrorism or arms struggle .
Now take a look at this! There are Roman’s Catholic presence in all countries, it is classically religious and not political. Out of it, broken out, Protestant, and Pentecostalism and Even what is known today as Catholics Charismatic Renewal of Revival. Yet, no security of any nation ever declared them as a threat.
Why are our security forces so silent about IPOB, which is more ferocious and categorical about its threat to national security and sovereignty? Why, particularly when Buhari was away? Why do they allow Nnamdi Kanu to trampled upon his bale conditions with such levels of recklessness and impunity, denigrating our National sovereignty? To the best of my knowledge locally and internationally, the Shiit Islamic Movement has not done anything that could be considered a threat to national security in their four decades among us. They are patriotic and above all they massively voted for President Buhari, much more than the Wahabist in Nigeria; some of who predicted that Buhari will never be a President after they collected billions from Jonathan. I want any security institution to engage me over the Shiite issue in Nigeria and I will expose all their failures and deception.
They are misinforming Mr. President whom I admire so much, they are in essence serving foreign interest for dollars and pecuniary gains.
I hate all forms of lies and misrepresentation of facts, I won’t take it even from my father. Let us all rise to protect the sovereignty of Nigeria and jealously embrace the peace in the country.
If I meet President Buhari today, without missing words. The first thing I will tell him is that. My father, you have been deliberately misled. Please release Sheikh Zakzaky today!! He is not an enemy he is a lover of Nigeria unity and peace and development.
As I write this tonight my heart bleeds profusely for the half hazardous manner our security forces engages issues.
What Zakzaky need from this government is heartfelt condolences, sympathy,apology and reparations and certainly not incarceration and brutality. The enemies who are pretending to be friends and lovers of Buhari are the ones at work regarding the persecution of Sheikh Zakzaky. and they are trying to make more enemies for Buhari because they hate his gut and success!!
Indeed, a Partnership with Iran by Federal Government will lead Nigeria to fast growths, technological and scientific independent faster than our wasted years of over 5 decades with the Western Powers that are manipulating us, exploiting us, economically, turned all our leaders to thieves as they provided safe havens for looted funds from Nigeria, and refused to concede economics independent to us, let alone technology and scientific capabilities, so that we can continue to be subservient to them. Iran desires a win-win Strategic partnership with Nigeria; after all we are both developing countries and members of Strategic economic bloc called OPEC. Nothing is wrong in having a blossoming governmental and humans to humans relationships with The Islamic Republic of Iran.

Islamic Movement in Nigeria (IMN) writes the President …picks faults with Presidential Investigation Panel into Military violations of Human rights

President Muhammadu BuhariThe Islamic Movement in Nigeria (IMN) has sent letter to the President and Commander-in-Chief of Nigerian Armed Forces stating their observations and expressing concerns pertaining to the recently inaugurated Presidential Investigation Panel to probe human rights abuses by the military in the country.
The letter dated 17th August 2017 and signed on behalf of the Movement by Professor Abdullahi Danladi, described the human rights records of the Nigerian army as dismal and wondered why despite repeated calls from the Movement and other credible international rights bodies like Amnesty, it took this length of time to set up one. “We had written a letter to you in early 2016 urging you to set a process to timeously have an independent judicial
commission of inquiry with the supervisions of international community that would unearth the truth on the matter rather than wait for anyreport of a biased party to the incident as you had doggedly maintained you would at the
time (especially during your maiden media chat), but you did not heed our call and certainly,
never even contemplated setting up any such panel.”
The IMN expressed serious doubts in the sincerity behind setting this panel at at this point in time. “It would appear that setting up of this panel may be related to a quick attempt at convincing (or more appropriately deceiving) the US government into selling weapons to it,” IMN stated. It also accused the Nigerian government of trying to trick the International Criminal Court
(ICC) at The Hague presently investigating the Zaria massacre of December 2015 into
believing that it is now willing and also able to investigate and dispense justice in that regard.
IMN quarried “in what ways will this Presidential Investigation Panel be different from what the judicial commission of inquiry into Zaria incident set up by the Kaduna state
government?” It said the composition of the Presidential panel, which involves members of the Kaduna commission and the military panel that earlier absolved the army of blame, as well as representatives of the military, the police and other security agencies does not instil confidence in the process at all. It noted that exclusion of notable reputable rights bodies and victims representatives was unfair. “The sum of all this is that the independence and impartiality of this new panel is not in any way guaranteed.”
It kicked against the systematic refusal of free access to the panel for their Leader, Sheikh Ibraheem Zakzaky and others being detained, and observed that there were no provisions put in place for them to make their appearance and presentations at the panel as free citizens.
The letter also wondered how the panel is going to tackle what the Kaduna commission already established as a matter of fact, even without the participation of IMN or its legal representatives that there was “use of excessive and disproportionate force by the Nigerian army against members of the IMN leading to massacre of hundreds” as reported by the commission. IMN quoted the Commission’s report copiously to buttress its point and align those with similar reports by Amnesty International, which talked about “mass slaughter of hundreds of men, women and children by soldiers in
Zaria and the attempted cover-up of this crime,” demonstrating “an utter contempt for human life and accountability.” IMN asked what was the point of this Presidential panel when all previous reports had already established that ” the actions of troops by the Nigerian Army were found to be contrary
to Rules of Proportionality by International Standards.”
IMN also noted that Army officers never ever cooperated with previous inquiries and believes that the same would play out in the presidential panel. It noted how army officers blatantly denied killing IMN members and digging mass graves, even after confession by Kaduna state officials with whom they closely worked.
The IMN concluded the letter by describing the government as one in denial because it refuses to acknowledge military excesses in handling civil matters. Consequently, “no prosecutions, no remorse and no public apologies!” The letter ended by stating that they still expect some national words of condolence to the families that lost their dear ones and were buried in mass
graves. “We believe that those Nigerian lives matter.”

Date: 17th August, 2017
The Acting President,
Federal Republic of Nigeria,
Presidential Villa,
Your Excellency Sir,
*Re-Setting up of the Presidential Investigation Panel to probe human rights abuses by Nigerian military*
Sequel to your recent inauguration of the above-mentioned panel and what appears to be their prompt swing into action, we the members of the Islamic Movement in Nigeria (IMN), being
obviously the largest community of victims of human rights abuses by the Nigerian military,
wish to make the following observations and express our concerns as follows:
1. The actual intention of setting up the “Presidential Investigation Panel” at this material point in time appears misty. Recall Sir that the IMN had written a letter to you early in 2016 urging you to set a process to timeously have an independent judicial
commission of inquiry with the supervisions of international community that would unearth the truth on the matter. We particularly requested you not to wait for any report of a biased party to the incident as you had doggedly maintained you would at the
time (especially during your maiden media chat). You did not heed our call and certainly,
never even contemplated setting up any such a panel despite pressures from rights bodies within and outside the country. You will also recall Sir, that earlier, a presidential
spokesperson shocked the World when he said that the incident was “a military affair.” That looked like an obvious tacit approval of the attacks by the Presidency and by implication complicity. The body language of the President and what the
Presidency kept telling the public since then was that they were awaiting the report of the Kaduna State commission to take a decision. So, what is the game changer this time around? The decision to establish this panel now will mean it has jettisoned that
report or what?
It would appear that setting up of this Presidential panel may be related to a quick attempt at convincing (or more appropriately deceiving) the US government into selling
weapons to it. The US government has hitherto cited the military’s dismal human rights records in refusing sale of weapons to the country. Furthermore but in the same vein, the Nigerian government may hope to trick the International Criminal Court (ICC) at The Hague presently investigating the Zaria massacre of December 2015 into
believing that the government is now willing and also able to investigate and dispense justice in that regard. That has been one major sore point this government has
remained unconvincing.
2. In what ways will this Presidential Investigation Panel be different from what the judicial commission of inquiry into Zaria incident set up by the Kaduna state
government? Beyond perhaps its scope (now also looking at other rights abuses by the
military in other places and time) we note very many similarities, which do not instil confidence in the process.
3. From the composition of this panel, it is noted that the military, the police and security agencies are all represented. This is not the case with well-known community of victims of the alleged military violations such as us. With due respect to members in the panel, the “eyes” of world renowned human rights bodies are also not in this panel. We noticed that even a member who served in the Kaduna state judicial
commission is included. Similarly, another member who enjoys the confidence of the
Chief of Army Staff (COAS) and who similarly served in the military investigation panel set up by the COAS himself that absolved the army of any wrongdoing has been included in this Presidential panel as well. The sum of all this is that the independence
and impartiality of this new panel is not in any way guaranteed.
4. We also feel very strongly that any investigation of the military attack on members of
the Islamic Movement in Nigeria (IMN) that does not include a way to make our leader, Sheikh Ibraheem Zakzaky and other members being unjustifiably detained
(some even against valid Nigerian court orders) to have free access to make their
appearance and presentations would be most unfair and unjust. So, how does the
presidential panel want to go around this? Sheikh Zakzaky has been denied access to his legal representatives for over nineteen months now. In fact, it is difficult to see
how the chief victim of military violations in Nigeria can be excluded from such a panel and be seen to be just and fair. That was the major flaw of the Kaduna
commission and all previous “probes” into the matter thus far.
5. One other interesting part is how this panel is going to handle what the Kaduna commission established already as a matter of fact. Even without our participation or having any legal representation, the Kaduna judicial commission clearly established the “use of excessive and disproportionate force by the Nigerian army against members of the IMN leading to massacre of hundreds.” The commission also agreed a “massacre” indeed took place, “the high number of casualties cannot be justified”
(page 85 of its report). It also established that the Nigerian army carried out the massacre. “The actions of troops by the Nigerian Army were also found to be contrary
to Rules of Proportionality by International Standards.” (Page 76 of the report) and 3
they also stated that “it did appear that the Nigerian Army did not adhere strictly to the provisions of its Rules of Engagement and the Code of Ethics during the operation.” All that the judicial commission found in this regard were in conformity with what independent rights bodies who investigated the matter found and published in their earlier reports. In particular, Amnesty International (AI) in its detailed report, talked of “mass slaughter of hundreds of men, women and children by soldiers in
Zaria and the attempted cover-up of this crime,” demonstrating “an utter contempt for human life and accountability.” Human Rights Watch (HRW), another credible
body that independently investigated the incident wrote in its own report, “The killing of hundreds of Shia Muslim members of the Islamic Movement of Nigeria (IMN), by
Nigerian army soldiers from December 12 to 14, 2015, appears to have been wholly unjustified.” It concluded that the military attack in Zaria was “at best (it was) a brutal overreaction and at worst (it was) a planned attack on the minority Shia group.” So
what exactly is the point of this Presidential panel?
6. In previous open investigations on the subject matter, the military never cooperated with the panel beyond trying to justify its actions. For instance, during the Kaduna
commission sittings, the army had sitting commissioners and it was heavily
represented by lawyers and top ranking military officers. Yet, it deliberately refused
to cooperate with the commission to even establish the number of people it killed. It
denied deaths and denied existence of mass graves. Even after confessions to the
contrary by Kaduna state officials who worked with the officers, the army bluntly refused to open up to its crimes. The Kaduna commission of inquiry even lamented in its report the recalcitrant attitude of the Nigerian army in situations such as this. It is an open knowledge that since the publication of its report, Amnesty International has been severely attacked and seriously threatened by the military hierarchy. The question now is how would that be different at this Presidential panel of inquiry? What level of cooperation would the army give?
7. Finally your Excellency, it appears the government is in denial and Nigeria is similarly a country in denial. It has never acknowledged military excesses in handling civilian matters. It denies them if it could and justifies them when obviously it cannot
be denied. No prosecutions, no remorse, no public apologies! It openly attacks international bodies when they come up with incontrovertible evidences against the
army. It doesn’t appear that this is about to change even in the present Presidential
panel. In the case of the Zaria massacre, the government has thus far refused to redress the wrong carried out by the military. It has furthered the wrong by the
continued detention of Sheikh Ibraheem Zakzaky and his wife, whose private residences were invaded by heavily armed Nigerian soldiers, their children, relatives and associates shot dead right to their faces, themselves shot at point blank severally and captured in the most humiliating and denigrating manner and hauled into detention virtually incommunicado without charges for twenty months. Even after a Nigerian High Court had ruled that the detention is unconstitutional and ordered their release, the government has continued to contemptuously defy the order. What
guarantees are there that this government knows anything called justice?
These observations and concerns do not inspire confidence that the panel is sufficiently
independent and impartial enough to allow free and full participation, and that the government would be just in the matter at all. We believe you will understand, as a
Senior Advocate of Nigeria (SAN), that the fairness, independence and impartiality of
this panel as required by Section 36 of the 1999 Constitution of the Federal Republic
of Nigeria (as amended), the provisions of the African Charter on Human and
Peoples’ Rights Cap A9, Laws of the Federation of Nigeria, 2004 and the Universal
Declaration of Human Rights are in doubt. The rules of natural justice require, inter alia, that where likelihood of bias can reasonably be inferred or discovered whether directly or indirectly from the surrounding circumstances, then fair hearing is not observed. This is because justice should not only be done but it must be manifestly and undoubtedly be seen to have been done. The Presidential panel as constituted presently
lacks both legal and moral standing to inquire into the human rights abuses by the
Nigerian Army against the members of the Islamic Movement in Nigeria between the
25th- 26th July, 2014 and also the 12th-14th December, 2015 at Zaria for lack of fairness,
independence and impartiality.
While wishing you our regards of the highest consideration, we still expect some national
words of condolence to the families that lost their dear ones and were buried in mass
graves. We believe that those Nigerian lives matter.
Yours Sincerely,
_Prof. Abdullahi Danladi_
Islamic Movement in Nigeria

NSA Mongono’s hate campaign against IMN exposed

BY Free Zakzaky Campaign Committeemonguno rtd
A recent report brought to our attention indicates that the National Security Adviser, Major General BN Mongono (rtd) addressed the National Economic Council last Thursday, 17/08/17 indicating the level of hate burning in his chest and evil scheme against the Islamic Movement in Nigeria.
In the lecture delivered to the gathering entitled “OVERVIEW OF SECURITY CHALLENGES IN NIGERIA FOR THE NATIONAL ECONOMIC COUNCIL” and marked “confidential” misinformed the Economic Council that IMN leadership plans to engage some of its members in some form of what he called “suspicious” training abroad. This laughable “confidential” report according to him was a result of what he called “evaluation of intelligence reports.”
The retired Major General, further alleged that already in the first quarter of 2017, IMN sent a contingent from Kano, Kaduna, Katsina and Sokoto states to undergo 3 months training on Shiite ideologies.
According to the NSA, Iran’s strategic interests in Nigeria “is a major concern to national security.” He said that Iran has promoted what he called “Khomeinism” and declared that in no region outside the Middle East has Iran’s ideology made a greater impact than in Northern Nigeria.
What is baffling in the whole of the presentation was lack of concrete evidence for these wild and spurious allegations. That a retired military officer who rose to the rank of a Major General and a supposed Security expert now holding the position of National Security Adviser would ferry these baseless lies as evaluation of “intelligence reports” would easily explain why Nigeria is in such a huge mess.
The main thrust of his baseless arguments lie in what he termed “Shiite ideology” and “Khomeinism” being a major concern to national security. The question is what is this his Shiite ideology and in what ways has it threatened another vague thing he called national security. Where are the antecedents that indicate that those holding Shiite ideologies have threatened the peace, stability and security of Nigeria? Was any of security threats the nation ever faced ever linked with Shiite ideologies? Of all the other security challenges he said facing the country; Cattle rustling, Kidnapping, Boko Haram terrorism, Herdsmen/farmers conflicts, Cultism, Militancy and Piracy, which is fuelled by Shiite ideologies?
This type of NSA’s burning desire to use lies in the name of intelligence reports and being a purveyor of hate for Shiites in Nigeria without basis have been the basis of official terrorism against members of the IMN. It is this type of hate position in high places that constitute some of the drivers of such massive official massacre as we saw in Zaria in December, 2015 where the military turned its brutal might against citizens, killing over a thousand innocent men, women and children over one weekend alone.
People like Monguno are not fit to even hold positions to care for animals, not to talk of to be entrusted with task of national security advising. Hate for a people is what motivates them into their evil actions.
We have noted this and appropriately recorded it as one of several hate campaigns that preceded, accompanied and followed the Zaria genocide. Maj Gen Mongono would be held responsible should any life of any member of the Islamic Movement in Nigeria be threatened or jeopardized henceforth.
