Shiites are not terrorists – Femi Kayode cautions Buhari

After listing alleged three mistakes done by President Muhammadu Buhari, Mr Femi Fani-kayode has condemned the move by the Federal Government to proscribe Islamic Movement of Nigeria (IMN)Shiites as terrorist organization.

As Reported by Qods News Agency (Qodsna) FIRST REPORTS earlier reported that the Federal Government has obtained an ex parte order from Abuja Federal High Court ordering the proscription of IMN as terrorist organization.


The order issued by Presiding Officer, Justice N. E. Maha and signed by the Court Registrar, Nnenna Peace Kanu reads in part as follows:


“An order is made declaring the activities of the Respondent (Islamic Movement of Nigeria) by whatever names they may be called or referred to.


“An order restraining any person or group of persons from participating in any matter whatsoever in any form of activities involving or concerning the Prosecution of the collective intention or otherwise of the


Respondent (Islamic Movement of Nigeria) under any other name or platform howsoever called or described in any part of Nigeria.


“An order directing the Applicant [Federal Government] to publish the order proscribing the Respondent (Islamic Movement of Nigeria) in the official Gazette and two National Dailies.”

But Femi Fani-Kayode, former Aviation Minister has disagreed with the action of the Federal Government.


In a message message obtained by our correspondent on Saturday, Fani-Kayode stated that IMN/Shiites is not a terrorist organization.


He berated President Buhari’s government for alleged injustice meted on the group and its members.


His words: “You [Buhari] killed 7 of his 8 children leaving him [El-Zakzaky] with only one. You shot his wife in the stomach 4 times and have kept her in illegal detention ever since. You shot and blinded him in one

eye, put him in a wheelbarrow, arrested him and have kept him in illegal detention ever since.


“You killed thousands of his followers including women and children over the last four years. Now you proscribe his IMN simply because they insist on his release and demonstrated in the streets. You did all these to him and yet he still stands tall. Can’t you see that you have failed?


“We Christians of Nigeria will never forget the way in which Ibrahim El-Zakzaky and his Shia Muslims protected and assisted our brothers and sisters in the North over the years when the salafist, wahabbi Sunni fundamentalists slaughtered us like flies.


“We stand by them [Shiites] at this difficult time, we condemn the proscription of the IMN, we declare that they are NOT terrorists and we say “NO” to the tyranny of Buhari and his evil agenda.”
