Attempt to kill Sheikh Zakzaky: Malam Mukhtar Sahabi cautions government

By Ibrahim Usman
Following series of foiled attempts to kill Sheikh Zakzaky recently, Malam Mukhtar Sahabi has cautioned Nigerian government on the implication of its plan. He made the statement at the closeof this year’s Ashura Majalis in Kaduna on Sunday.

Malam Mukhtar Sahabi said for peace to reign in Nigeria, the government led by Goodluck Jonathan should desist from their planned evil act, as "Sheikh Zakzaky the widely acclaimed as the most peaceful man in the country and even beyond Nigerian shores".

According to him, Jonathan had made up his mind to kill Sheikh Zakzaky at all cost, but the consequences will not favour him and his evil team as Allah the Almighty watches over events. "To Allah we depend, and He will surely protect His servant from the evil-plotters".

He explained that the attempt on Sheikh Zakzaky’s life was sponsored by Israel, which the Nigerian president was directed to execute as a prerequisite to remain in office. "Nigerians should realize that this is an evil wind that will blow nobody any good. No one is safe, they are desperate and blind to cling to power", headded.

Malam Mukhtar Sahabi further said, the fact that Jonathan and his evil clan had given 30 days within which to kill Sheikh Zakzaky shows that, the plan is on and will continue to unfold till Araba’een, and probably beyond.

He therefore called on Brothers and Sisters to intensify prayers and vigil, as the plan also included what he calls ‘Soft Targets’, individul members of the Islamic Movement who will be identified and killed at any point and any moment.

"In the event of any eventuality, we know who to hold responsible. Let them know this. Besides, we will protect our Leader to last drop of our blood", he concluded.
