Human Rights Writers Association of Nigeria (HURIWA), a civic group, has written off the civil rule in Nigeria, claiming that more than 20 years after the abortion of military dictatorship, the country is still not yet a constitutional democracy.
Despite a worrisome security alert by the Department of State Services (DSS), Nigeria’s secret police on Monday that some undisclosed elements were bent on destabilising the troubled country, the defiant members of the Islamic Movement in Nigeria (IMN), the Shi’ites, said they will be embarking on a peaceful protest across some major cities to mark the Ashura Islamic rites.
The obviously defiant Shi’ites have taken on the All Progressives Congress (APC) administration of President Muhammadu Buhari, urging the government to look elsewhere in search of its plural challenges and leave them alone.
Leader of the Islamic Movement in Nigeria (IMN), Sheikh Ibraheem El-Zakzaky, is back from an aborted medical treatment in India with his wife and in the custody of the Department State Services (DSS), Nigeria’s secret police.
Leader of the proscribed Islamic Movement of Nigeria, Sheikh Ibrahim El-Zakzaky is on his way back to Nigeria, the spokesperson of the group, Ibrahim Musa, has said.
