Politicians Vs Military: Update On Kaduna Government’s Surprising Confession Of Mass Burial Of Zaria Victims

Mass graves discovered in Kaduna after massacre


From the testimonies of the officials of the Kaduna state government that included the SSG Lawal Balarabe Abbas and the DG Islamic affairs Namadi Musa before the kangaroo Judicial Commission of Inquiry (JCI) into the brutal Zaria massacre, it seems the clever Kaduna state Governor Nasir el-Rufai had decided to distance himself from the massacre by exposing everything and making the Nigerian Army solely responsible for the brutal slaughter of close to 1000 defenseless & unarmed #Shia_Muslims in Zaria.

It is important to note that they were all part of the plot;the Nigerian President Buhari, the Nigerian Army, the Kaduna state government, the Zaria Emirate council and Wahhabi clerics. They plotted that inhuman massacre & executed it.

But today the officials of the Kaduna state government announced to the JCI that there was indeed a mass grave that contain the dead bodies of 347 Shia Muslims killed by the Nigerian Army in Zaria. And they gave the breakdown of the dead bodies, how and where they collected them and where they eventually buried them. The Kaduna state officials went to the extent of saying that all #IMN buildings were in accordance to the laws of Kaduna state!

buhari sadThe question to ask is that why is the Kaduna state government “betraying” the Nigerian Army? There is also a credible report that the Nigerian President Buhari has distanced himself from the brutal Zaria massacre by claiming that it is an issue of the Kaduna state government and the Nigerian Army.

No doubt the Nigerian Army are the executors of the brutal massacre, they pulled the trigger on a civilian population and they dropped all the bombs but they were not the masterminds. They were ordered to do what they did from a superior authority and who will that be if not the commamder-in-chief of the Nigerian armed forces.

But as things are unfolding the civilian authorities that are politicians are trying to pull out from the ungodly alliance and put all the blame on the Nigerian military authorities. The local Nigerian masters want to put all the blame on the local hunting dog that executed the plot. By revealing the location of the mass graves that contained men, women, children and the aged, the pressure will now be on the military authorities while the Kaduna state government will like to be seen as “innocent and just”.

The question to ask is that what triggered this voluntary confession? To be honest most of us were not expecting it, these confessions came as a surprise and shock to us considering the fact that we have been battling from one form of conspiracy to another from the Nigerian regime. Since the brutal Zaria massacre the Nigerian regime have been doing anything humanly possible to demonize the IMN and link it to murderous terrorism. They had made different attempts using various fronts to further this evil agenda.

There are two things that triggered today’s confession by Kaduna state government officials; the efficacy of prayers of the oppressed as promised by God and prayers of all those who showed support to the oppressed from around the world. The second reason is the referring of the Zaria massacre to the International Criminal Court (ICC) by IMN. Nigerian politicians like Governor Elrufai are cowards who passionately love the world, they will do anything possible to come clean from ICC investigations.

Finally, thousands of gratitude to all those who campaigned actively for justice to the victims of the brutal Zaria massacre. Some even have death threats hanging over their neck but they stood firm, took all the risk and spread the truth by calling for justice to the victims and punishment to the war criminals who murdered the innocent and dumped their dead bodies in mass graves. This is not the end of the road, this is just the beginning and hopefully more facts will emerge as the whereabouts of the remaining 400+ IMN members that are still not accounted for.
