Why Is The Sultan Of Sokoto And Amir-ul-Momineen Not Openly Pressing For Zakzaky’s Rights To Legal Council

Where is Sheikh Zakzaky?

By Mahdi Garba

It is no more a stale news that; for the past 3 months, leader of the Islamic movement in Nigeria his eminence Sheikh Ibrahim Zakzaky has been kept incommunicado after killing over 700, which 3 among were his biological children.

The pretext of this unprecedented attack was a purported attack on the Chief of Army staff, Lt. Gen Tukur Yusuf Buratai, which sounded illogical. The alleged ‘attack’ on the COAS is a disgrace to the Nigeria’s security and more of showcasing their ineptitude.

It still perplexes one to learn that the well-armed Nigerian military on a killing spree attacked a peaceful gathering of law abiding citizens and later proceeded to the residence of Sheikh Zakzaky in Gyellesu, Zaria.

Since the invasion of 12-14 December, 2015 the whereabout of Sheikh Zakzaky and his wife Malama Zeenah is best known to the Nigeria’s absent President, knuckle-head COAS and the hypocritical Nasiru El-Rufai who founded the Judicial Commission of Inquiry which was brimful of staunch Salafo-Wahabi evangelists and supporters.

From inception, with people like Salisu Shehu, Salihu Abubakar, Auwal Yadudu and Umar Labdo, the Judicial Commission of Inquiry is verisimilitude of a commission of indictment, not inquiry. All this aforemententioned people are well known anti-Shia ‘clerics’ whom for about two decades have been enticing scoundrels and government officials to attack the movement and her leader, Sheikh Zakzaky.

Since the inauguration of the KSDG’s Kangaroo committee, there are tremendous effort by the guild of solicitors defending the Islamic Movement to see Sheikh Zakzaky but all abortive.

The most pertinent questions men of consceince across the globe are still asking is; “Where is Sheikh Zakzaky? Why is his right as a Nigerian citizen trampled on? Where is Malama Zeenah? What was the crime of her 3 children killed on her eyes? Where are the missing 700+?

Certainly, this are questions Nigerian government must answer to satisfy our fastidiousness!
