Islamic Movement in Nigeria (IMN) has called on the international community, UN, EU, AU, ECOWAS and the ICC to pressurize the Nigerian government to respect its rights and those of its members especially its leader Sheikh Ibraheem Zakzaky or impose due sanctions on it.
“We call on the international community, and especially the UN, EU, AU, ECOWAS and the ICC to add more pressure on the government to live up to its responsibility as regards to the issue of the Islamic Movement in general and Sheikh Ibraheem Zarkzaky in particular or be prepared to be ostracized and be convicted”
This is contained in a statement issued to newsmen today by the IMN in Kaduna and signed by Sheikh Abdulhamid Bello to commemorate the two years anniversary of the Zaria massacre.
The statement also demanded that the corpses of all those killed, including those in the mass graves, be exhumed and returned to the IMN for identification and befitting burial according to Islamic rights while it called for the immediate and unconditional release of Sheikh Zakzaky, his wife and hundreds of those detained in various detention facilities across the country.
It further called for an open, independent and impartial inquiry to unearth the truth about the December 2015 crackdown on the movement adding that such an inquiry must have as members, persons with credible character, and there must be full participation of internationally accepted human rights groups as observers.
As the statement called for those responsible for either planning or executing the horrendous attack on the Movement to be brought to book irrespective of their status in the society, it also expressed appreciation to all those that stood by the IMN during its period of travails.
“We appreciate those who for the past two years have stood by us in rain and in sunshine. May Allah reward them abundantly” the statement added.
