Sect says Judicial Commission embarked on fruitless exercise

Members of the Shiite Islamic sect call on the governor to allow their leader legal representation so that the Judicial Commission can yield results.

The Shiite Islamic Movement in Nigeria has said that the Judicial Commission of Inquiry setup by Kaduna State Governor, Malam Nasir Ahmad Elrufai to look into the clash between members of the group and the Nigerian Army has embarked on a fruitless exercise.

According to a statement issued by the group spokesman, Ibrahim Musa, in Kaduna, the group said there was no way the movement’s lawyers will submit input to the commission without the release of their leader.

“While we will be glad if the legal rights of our leader are restored, we still reiterate our earlier demand that we will not work with the Commission of Inquiry unless our leader is released. They have been holding him for more than 90 days” the statement said.

“We therefore advise the Commission not to engage in a fruitless exercise if it cannot secure access to the leader of the Islamic Movement in Nigeria. The Nigerian people should note that the leader of the movement and the wife are held in solitary confinement and have not been charged with any offence since they were mortally wounded on the 12th and 13th of December 2016.”

“We urge all well meaning Nigerians to prevail on the government to release the leader of our Movement to enable him tell the Nigerian people and the world the atrocities committed by the Nigerian military” the statement said.
