25th July: A Foundation to 12th December Zaria Massacre
By: U. S. Adam.
25th July 2014 is an unforgettable day in the history of Nigeria. It’s a day in which the Nigerian Army had mercilessly killed 34 innocent unarmed civilians in Zaria, who their sole crime was protesting peacefully in solidarity with the oppressed people of the Palestine.
This tremendous tragedy is a clear indication of the absolute authority of the Israeli Government over the Nigerian army; for the bullets used in perpetrating the crime was imported from Israel.
The aim of the Nigerian Army on that very day was not just killing 34 unarmed members of the Islamic Movement in Nigeria rather they intended to kill Sheikh Ibraheem Zakzaky and wipe out the Islamic movement in Nigeria. However, they ended killing 34 innocent people, including three sons of Sheikh Zakzaky – Sayyid Ahmad, Hamid and Mahmoud.
The unjustifiable massacre was carried out in a broad daylight, and the culprits are yet to pay the consequences of their mischievous actions.
After a series of an unsuccessful and failed assassination attempts, a year after the 25th July Zaria Massacre, the Nigerian army on 12th December 2015 descended on the members of the Islamic Movement in Nigeria and its leadership to finish the Israeli contract of wiping out the Islamic Movement in Nigeria completely, killing more than 1,000 members of the Movement, fatally injured Sheikh Zakzaky and his wife, and demolition of several buildings belonging to the movement. And eventually detained Sheikh Zakzaky and his wife unlawfully till date.
The strategic mission is still progressing using the delay tactics by denying Sheikh Zakzaky and his wife proper medical attention and attacking peaceful protesters demanding for his unconditional release.
