Soldiers Attack at Husainiyyah: Seven killed

Following the brutal attack by the Nigerian Soldiers on Husainiyyah Baqiyyatullah Zaria on Saturday the 12th of Dec 2015 the number of people killed has risen to seven (7) while 11 are seriously injured at various degree. The figure of the dead represents those in  the possession of the Movement as the fate of those taken away by the Soldiers after they were shot is not known.

As at the time of this report, there is no acces to the Husainiyyah as all roads leading to it have been blocked by Nigerian soldiers; they also besieged the building while many brothers and sisters were locked inside. 

In a move to cover up its attrocities, the Military, through its spokeman, said the convoy of Lt Gen Yusuf Burutai the Chief of Army Staff was attacked by the Muslims brothers and Sisters using arms. While in reality, the armless Muslims have gathered at Husainiyyah Baqiyatllah, Zaria for flag changing ceremony for the fall of the  month of Rabiul Auwal- the birth month of the holy Prophet(SAWA). In almost 37 years of its activities, the islamic Movement in Nigeria has never attack anybody- be it soldiers, police, individual or group.
