Another fresh free Sheikh Zakzaky protest was staged in Kaduna on Thursday the 4th of July 2019. People carrying some banners took to the major street in Kaduna, the popular Ahmadu Bello Way, calling for the freedom of Sheikh Zakzaky.
It could be recalled that Nasiru Elrufai, the Governor of Kaduna state and Buhari, organised the December 2015 massacre in Zaria where over one thousand were mercilessly killed by the Nigerian soldiers. Few days later Elrufai destroyed all landed properties of the Islamic Movement including the residence of the Sheikh. He later set up a committee of inquiry. In one of the sittings of the committees the Secretary to the the Kaduna State stated that Elrufai burried 347 people in mass grave in Mando area of Kaduna state. Most of them were women and children, it was clear that among those buried were not dead but suffering from various degrees of injuries. The aim of the mass burial was to cover up the atrocities of the Kaduna state government, Buhari and Nigerian army.
