Shiite’s spokesman Accuses DSS of incitement, says “We are not terrorist”

Ahead of 2019 presidential election,the Islamic Movement of Nigeria, IMN, has accused the Department of State Service ,DSS, of inciting other security agencies in the country to clampdown on the group.

IMN in a statement issued by its spokesman, Ibrahim Musa, said: “Early last month, members of the Islamic Movement in Nigeria got hold of a secret circular written by the Department of State Service (DSS) dated 1st January, 2019 which was dispatched to all Service Chiefs, Inspector General of Police and heads of other security agencies urging them to take aggressive stance against us.

The letter read in part: “Intelligence availed to this service revealed plans by the leadership of IMN to mobilise its membership in large numbers for a massive protest and other hostile activities, including the use of explosives and firearms in the days ahead. It was gathered that the group intends to besiege some major Northern cities and towns in Kano, Kaduna, Sokoto and the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) for the planned attack.

“The planned attack is to be carried out in league with members of the Islamic State West Africa Province (ISWAP), some opposition elements and a section of human rights movement, with a view to providing massive violence and attracting the attention of the International Community ahead of the 2019 general election.”

“We want to assure the general public and the international community that the allegation is malicious and unfounded, aimed at maligning the Movement with a view to painting it in bad light. There is no iota of truth in their claim, and it is just mere fabrication to justify the killing of members of the Movement ahead of February 16, Presidential election.

“We have said it several times that our protests are peaceful and have demonstrated that on the streets. All protest staged by the Islamic Movement in Nigeria are peaceful including the Free Zakzaky protest in Kaduna, Kano and the Federal capital city, Abuja. It is the Nigerian army and police that turn some of these peaceful protests violent by their attacks with live ammunition and in some cases battlefield weapons on peaceful protesters. The comprehensive revelation by the New York Times video on the Abuja Shia Massacre by the Elite presidential guard is a pointer to this fact. 

“Not only that, it is on record that during the 2011 election violence, Sheikh Zakzaky and other members of the Islamic Movement did all they could to stop the violence and even gave refuge to victims of the senseless killings, as a demonstration of its peaceful nature and its belief in mutual understanding between people of different tribes, regions and religions. 

“For a secret security service to now accuse us of planning violence is the height of the rot in its intelligence gathering and manufacturing systems.

“In view of the foregoing, we categorically reject the unprofessional, unintelligent and baseless allegations made by the DSS and confirm that we do not know the existence of or have any link what so ever with any group called Islamic State West Africa Province (ISWAP) and we have no plan to besiege or attack any town, place or person. Hence Nigerians should disregard these frivolous claims by the DSS. Perhaps Buhari can feel the inevitable defeat coming his way, so the  desperate attempt by the administration to cause chaos so that the elections will not hold, at the same time becloud its brutal and inhuman Saudi-sponsored Zaria genocide that resulted in the brutal death of 1000+ innocent children, women and men in Zaria in December 2015.

“If the security agencies are jittery of our peaceful nationwide protests and want them stopped, then our main demand should be met. We demand nothing other than the unconditional release of our oppressed leader, Sheikh Ibraheem Zakzaky, his wife and others still in detention since 2015, as ordered by a high court in Abuja since 2016.” The statement said.

    I do enjoy the manner in which you have framed this specific matter plus it does indeed offer me personally some fodder for consideration. On the other hand, from everything that I have personally seen, I only hope when the actual responses pile on that individuals keep on point and not start upon a soap box of the news du jour. Still, thank you for this fantastic point and whilst I do not concur with this in totality, I respect the viewpoint.
