ASHURA MOURNING is a religious rite performed world over by the adherents of Shi'a School of Thought. This has nothing to do with any association, organisation or group. Thus, it forms part of fundamental human rights protected by the Constitution of Nigeria and African/UN Charter on Human Rights.

Today, Nasiru El Rufai, the Governor of Kaduna State ordered the attack of Ashura Mourning in Kaduna where Nigerian citizens of Shi'a belief gathered to observe their religious rite. Thus, the police opened fire indiscriminately with live bullets on the gathering which involved women and children. In the process, two people were confirmed killed with a dozen others injured, some critically. The death toll may rise.

This is the man that was stopped from addressing the conference of Nigerian Lawyers for violation of human rights among other things. El Rufai doesn't deserve any recognition by any responsible body, nor does he deserve any sympathy from any sane individual.

We thank the NBA NEC for stopping this murderous man from addressing our esteemed gathering.
