As a result of a confrontation with the police in Kaduna State, the outlawed Islamic Movement of Nigeria (IMN), popularly known as Shiites, claims that at least four of its members have been killed and an undetermined number have been injured.

In an interview with newsmen, IMN member Professor Dauda Nalado claimed that police in Kaduna fired shots on Friday in an attempt to disperse the group’s procession in observance of International Quds Day.

The Nigeria Police and other law enforcement agencies responded to the massive outpouring of Shi’ites by taking action to disperse them.

On Friday, Shiites had gathered along Ahmadu Bello Way at the Katsina roundabout before the police tried to disperse them so they could begin their parade.

When police opened fire on the Shiites procession in an attempt to disperse the demonstrators, it heightened tensions and anxiety among the populace, particularly those whose shops were located along Ahmadu Bello Way.

Imam Ruhullah Al-Musawi Al-Khomeini, the great global leader of the Islamic Revolution, called on all people, Muslim and non-Muslim alike, who had compassion for the oppressed Palestinian people, to stand in solidarity with them and reject the brutality of the usurper, apartheid, and the unlawful state of Israel (Nalado, 2003). The International Quds Day is celebrated every year on the last Friday of Ramadan, as decreed by the Imam.

He elaborated by saying that Ibraheem Ya’qoub El-Zakzaky’s Islamic movement in Nigeria had been keeping tabs on the event for decades.

He went on to say that the Buhari regime’s 2015 slaughter in Zaria, which included the killing of Sayyid Ibraheem El-Zakzaky and the suppression of the justice movement, was in part motivated by the yearly parade because of the city’s unwavering support for the Palestinian cause.
