Potiskum bomb attack: Why we are targeted- Malam Mustapha Lawan Nasidi

By Ibrahim Usman
In an interview with BB Hausa Service over the recent Potiskum bomb attack in Saqafa area, Ameer of Potiskum under the Islamic Movement in Nigeria says members were targets of attack for their refusal to keep quite in the face of conspiracy on Nigerians in the name of Boko Haram insurgents.

Malam Mustapha Nasidi explained that the ultimate aim of these attacks was the Leader of the Movement, His Eminence Shaikh Ibraheem Zakzaky who at various instances exposed faces of perpetrators of the murderous acts.

According to him, the constant exposition of the conspiracy on Nigerians by Shaikh Zakzaky and his followers has become a major threat to the government and their masters, and are therefore desperate on suppressing the Movement.

Malam Mustapha Nasidi explained that, perpetrators of the dastardly crime lure unsuspecting individual to carry the explosive while they standby with the remove control to ensure the target is hit as planned.

He pointed out that, there were series of failed attempt on the life of Shaikh Zakzaky in the recent past, and cited the recent Markaz attack by the Nigerian military in Kaduna as a clear manifestation of such desperation.

He said it was the second attack on the same place, was in July 2014 where 4 Brothers were killed and many injured.

It would be recalled that on May 27, 2012, armed security forces attacked residence of Malam Mustapha Nasidi and killed 3 Brothers, including his brother. The incidence occurred when the Brothers were observing Maghrib prayers.
