"Chibok girls abduction" was very unfortunate, while the Government and the media want us to believe that the abduction was carried out by "Boko Haram", some credible information shows that the abduction was a false flag operation, carried out by the Nigerian Army in other to achieve a specific political aim. Whoever the abductor is, the Nigerian Army is definitely involved in it, the least we can say is that the reckless handling of the issue by the Nigerian Army made it worse to this extent.

On Saturday, 12th of December, 2015, members of the Islamic Movement in Nigeria were preparing for the flag hoisting ceremony to welcome the month of Rabi’ul Auwal in which prophet Muhammad (Saaw) was born, Some men of the Nigerian Army fully dressed and armed with dangerous weapons belonging to the Nigerian Government, went to Hussainiyyah Baqiyyatullah and killed some of the members of the Islamic Movement in Nigeria (IMN), the "criminals" pulled back and retreated after the killing. After some few minutes, the convoy of the Chief Of Army Staff (COAS), Lt. Gen Tukur Yusuf Buratai arrived Dogarawa, the main entrance to Zaria city from Kano direction. The Convoy of the COAS stopped and had some discussions for some minutes before they moved towards Hussainiyyah Baqiyyatullah, Zaria, together with the "criminals" that shot and killed some of the #IMN members. The convoy encountered some youths protesting the murder of their brothers and sisters around Hussainiyyah Baqiyyatullah. They shot the protesters, thereby killing more than 50 and injured tens. The convoy of the Chief of Army staff passed successfully after killing and arresting some of the members of the Islamic Movement in Nigeria.

Few hours later, another group of the Nigerian Army went back to the center, this time including explosive devices and Multi Purpose Machine Guns (MPMG), while the members of the Islamic Movement in Nigeria were mourning the murder of their brothers and sisters. They went on killing defenseless people from evening to morning. After successfully invading Hussainiyyah Baqiyyatullah, they arrested some members of the Islamic Movement and took them to the Army Barrack.

The attack was extended to other centers of the Islamic Movement. At Gyallesu were the leader of the Islamic Movement, Sheikh Ibraheem Zakzaky (H) reside, the worst atrocity was carried out by the Nigerian Army, the attack witnessed rape, torture, burning with fire, humiliation and oppression of many kind. After killing more than 1000 defenseless people, they killed 3 of the 4 remaining sons of Sheikh Zakzaky (H), they shot his wife 6 times and let her bleed woefully while he watches, they rained bullets on him while targeting sensitive spots. After all the oppression, they kidnapped Sheikh Zakzaky and took him to an unknown destination.

With all that had been done, the Nigerian Army abducted some girls of the Islamic Movement. For almost 9 months now, neither the abductors nor the Government disclose there whereabouts. The abducted girls of the Islamic Movement are students of different higher institutions across the country, they lost a complete session in their academic career while the program of their studies is under the threat of termination because their duration permit will expire defending on the policy of their schools. This is an injustice which deserve the intervention of human rights activists, advocates of justice and associations of higher institutions across the county.

At a situation like this when Nigerians and other concerned people around the world relied on the Nigerian Army for the emancipation of the "abducted Chibok girls", the Nigerian Army are found guilty of abduction beyond doubt. Free thinkers are questioning the scenario of "Chibok girls abduction" as some evidence are pointing on the Nigerian Army as been involved in the crime. This comes with substantiation as the Nigerian Army abducted Our Zaria Girls in a day light while the world watches and choose to remain silent but few.

The Nigerian Army cannot in anyway prove itself innocent in the abduction of Our Zaria Girls, some one like me used to believe that the Nigerian Army are not guilty in the "abduction of the Chibok girls", but after the unfortunate #ZariaMassacre, I begin to not only doubt their guilty, but come to believe that they are the abductors of the "Chibok girls".

Our hush while the Nigerian Army still hold Our Zaria Girls is a sign of betrayal of trust. It is high time we speak for justice because rights are not privileges, we own our rights and we have to fight for them. "an oppression for one is an oppression for all, "an injustice for one is an injustice for all", we have to speak for Our Zaria Girls, they must be freed and be served with justice. The abductors must be call to book, Nigerian Army are criminals in disguise. "Enough is Enough", let’s make our voice louder, let’s tell the world that Our Zaria Girls were oppressed, it is not about religion, tribe or race. It is about humanity which differentiate humans and otherwise. Allah ya taimake mu
