Zaria Incident: Law And Order Must Prevail- Nigerian Army

5 years ago

The Nigerian Army has released a statement on Saturday's clash between detachments of the Army and members of Shitte Sects. The statement released yesterday Sunday, December 13, by the Acting Director Army Public Relations, Colonel Sani Kukasheka Usman reads:
"Saturday's incident involving clashes between detachments of the Nigerian Army, accompanying the Chief of Army Staff Lieutenant General TY Buratai and followers of Sheikh Ibrahim El Zak-Zaky, suspected to be members of the Shiite Sect in Zaria, leading to loss of lives as a result of the Shiite group members’ blocking roads and not allowing other passers-by to go about their lawful businesses and activities, was most unfortunate.

The Nigerian Constitution guarantees the rights of any group of persons and Sheikh El Zak Zaky's followers to hold a peaceful march or procession unhindered, but it also guarantees other people's rights of way on public highways. It is important to note that over the years this group has subjected ordinary citizens using public roads to untold hardship, delays, threats and disruption simply because they insist on using public space irrespective of inconvenience and hardship on other law abiding citizens and motorists. This cannot be tolerated and must stop!

As soon as order is restored to the situation in Zaria city and its environs, the Police will conduct an enquiry and the public will be informed. In the meantime, the public is advised to go about their lawful business and report any suspicious persons or incidents to the police."[ads4]
