|PRESS STATEMENT: Government plans another clandestine operation against Arbaeen trek|
|Thursday, 17 November 2016 08:08|
It has come to the notice of the Islamic Movement in Nigeria (IMN) that security agents have been deploying some youths and miscreants, in two luxurious buses tonight. These young men are clad in black attire with ‘free Zakzaky’ inscriptions. They are particularly spotted around Malumfashi, Katsina state, probably in anticipation of the Arbaeen mourning trek scheduled to take off from there.
It will appear that they will be used in some clandestine operations simulating the Arbaeen trek, either independently or by joining members of the IMN, who are scheduled to embark on the annual trek to Zaria soon.
We wish to draw the attention of the general public to note that any suspicious activity that negates the very solemn, orderly or peaceful manner we have always conducted the Annual Arbaeen trek is by these Security forces, and not the IMN. We also wish to call on members of the IMN to remain very vigilant throughout, and to note as well as expose any evil manoeuvres of these unscrupulous security operatives.
Although these shady activities are noted along the Malumfashi axis of the trek, some of these agents might have been equally despatched to the other axis as well, necessitating continued attentiveness, and to report such suspicious moves in the most appropriate ways as usual.
