Thousands in different cities in Nigeria came out today Saturday 19th May, 2018 to condemn the refusal of the Nigerian government to unconditionally release Shaikh Zakzaky (H) and his wife Malama Zenatuddeen Ibraheem who at present their whereabout is unknown.
Likewise to show their support to the people of Palestine, who for about seventy years, have been subjected to different forms of oppression and tyranny.
In kano Nigeria, protesters carrying placards and banners expressing their demand for freedom of Zakzaky and Palestinians, voiced slogans along major streets of Kano cit. They matched through Kofar Dawanau, Goron Dutse, Gwammaja and ended at Kofar Mazugal.
Mal Yusuf Abdullahi, in a short speech after the protest, reiterated the reason why the Islamic Movement in Nigeria came out to demand for the unconditional release of its leader Shaikh Ibraheem Zakzaky (H) and his wife for justified reason. Despite the killings of about 1000 of his followers in December 2015 massacre which included the burning of his elder Sister alive and killing of his three sons, the Nigerian government still have a gut to arraign Shaikh Zakzaky and his wife for eight court charges that included killing of one officer(?).
Wheereas, a high court presided by Justice Kolawale in December 2016 has ordered for his unconditional release, payment of #25million compenstion and a house to be built for him in any location in Nigeria. However, the order has never been obeyed by the Nigerian government. Mal Yusuf reiterated that his followers shall never stay mute to see any form of oppression prevail, and are ready to sacrifice their lives for the live of leader Shaikh Zakzaky (H). "We also wouldn’t forget all those that play a role in all form of oppression against our leader and movement" he said.
Mal Yusuf also expressed further "we also at one hand support the people of Palestine who for several years have been oppressed by Israel under the support of USA and the financial support of Saudi Arabia. Ayatullah Ruhullah Khomeni (QS) has for a very long time called for the support of Palestine and he stand by that and still encouraged by Ayatullah Aliy Khamnaei. This been shown to us by the leader of the Islamic Movement in Nigeria and Africa Shaikh Zakzaky (H)."
