Millions of Muslims have today, Wednesday, camped outskirt of Zaria from different routes after a week-long trek for Arba’een commemoration tomorrow.
This will coincide with the Arba’een commemoration in Karbala, Iraq, which is the largest gathering in the world.
Commenting on the event shortly after the Tafsir session at the Hussainiyyah Baqiyyatullah today, Allama Shaikh Ibraheem Zakzaky (H) said enemies are desperate to launch attack on the event on entry into Zaria at the peak of the event.
Part of the planned, he explained, included placing explosives in petroleum jerry cans along the road, and in juice containers such as Five Alive brand.
He said, a certain individual was sighted purchasing large quantity of the Five Alive juice containers, pouring out the liquid content in preparation for the devilish plan.
Allama Zakzaky (H) added that, the plan resorted to was the last in the series of other plots that failed during the Arba’een symbolic trek, where the trekkers avoided bombs buried along some routes.
He said, the 23 people killed as a result of the bomb attack in Kano will be buried tomorrow after the Arba’een commemoration.
The Leader prayed for Allah’s protection at the event.
