Reports emanating from Darur Rahma, the cemetery belonging to Islamic Movement in Nigeria in the outskirts of Zaria indicate that just some moments ago, some soldiers went and shot pointblank an unknown person killing him instantly after tying his hands from behind. They went away leaving behind the corpse.
Witnesses including villagers and members of the Movement guarding the cemetery, who saw the horrific scene scampered for safety as the soldiers opened fire at the man in cold blood.
It is not clear who the person is or what he did to them. Even much more unclear is why they chose to perform this gruesome murder in our property.
Pictures of the victim as well as the footprints of the soldiers have been taken, and a complaint has been lodged with the nearest police station.
We feel obliged to inform the public knowing fully well the mischief of the Nigerian Army in trying to paint the Islamic Movement black in the eyes of the public especially in the last few days that they seem to redouble their efforts at soiling our name at all costs.
Attached is the corpse the victim
