3 Transferred from Sokoto Prison.

Three members of the Islamic Movement have been transferred from Sokoto Prison to other prisons last week. The Members are Mallam Kasim Umar who is now transferred to Awka Prison in Anambra state, Mallam Sidi Manniru to Oklabiya and Mallam Hassan Maccido to Orji Prison.

Some members of the Islamic Movement already paid a visit to the detained members at their new locations.

Members of the Islamic Movement in Sokoto suffered series of attacks in 2007 under the order of the state Governor Ali Wammako which led to the  death of some members in addition to the destruction of their landed properties worth millions of Naira for alleged killing of one Umar  Danmaishiya by  unknown assassins believed to have been sponsored by the Governor to fulfill his campaign promises which, among others, include  dealing with what he called spread of Shi’isim in the state. In order to achieve its aim, the Government hired some Clerics for campaign of calumny against members of the Islamic Movement aimed at discouraging people's  sympathy toward them.

The attack in 2007 was carried out by  Governor’s thugs carrying various dangerous arms like cutlasses , knives, iron rods, sticks etc under the protection  of joint team of police and soldiers in a country which claims to practice democracy !

After the attack  in 2007 six people were confirmed killed while 113 were arrested and still in detention in various prisons across the country while over 300 houses  and shops were destroyed by the thugs.
