Sheikh Zakzaky exposes desperate attempt on his life

By Ibrahim Usman
For the past four consecutive days during the Muharram Majalis at the Hussainiyyah Baqiyyatullah Zaria, Leader of the Islamic Movement in Nigeria, His Eminence Sheikh Ibraheem Zakzaky had been exposing the series of failed attempts at his life by the Nigerian security, especially after the bomb attack and shooting on Ashura procession in Potiskum on Monday.

On Thursday during the 14th day in the series of Ashura mourning, His Eminence disclosed that Ebele Jonathan wants him dead at all cost.

 The plan, he said, was to lay siege and staged an ambush on his convoy while coming or returning from Hussainiyyah. “Ebele Jonathan after killing my sons, still insists on killing me. These people have not given up in their plan to further unleash bloodshed. They are hell-bent and desperate to continue the killings. We are not in any way surprised, this is the tradition of past and present enemies”.

He further explained that having realized their plan, his convoy changed route on Tuesday, but the security operatives stationed their combatant men on each of the two routes and planted some things, but Allah thwarted the plan.

He further explained that, a security car was identified with its number plate parked at the post office near the Hussainiyyah Wednesday night waiting for his departure and sped up and took position along one of the route when he was about to depart and had to change route.

“Whenever we expose their plan they usually retract, but I am surprised that this time around they so insistent and desperate to accomplish their mission. Yet, their strategy exhibits element of cowardice as they preferred darkness and always want a location with an escape route so that they kill and go unnoticed”, said Sheikh Zakzaky

Sheikh Zakzaky stated that, though they are blinded by the obsession to kill, they should know that one day the table will turn against them. “Yes, they have guns and can kill people, as they have killer instinct in them. They should however know that gun does not rule. They should ponder over their continuous failures, and realize that there is a Supreme Force that rules over everything”.

He assured that at the end of the day the truth, which the Movement stands for, will emerge victorious.
