El-Zakzaky alleges plot to use ‘supporters’ to kill soldiers

The leader of the Islamic Movement in Nigeria, also known as the Shi’ites, Sheikh Ibraheem El-Zakzaky, on Tuesday raised the alarm over a plot by the military to allegedly cause violence in Zaria, Kaduna State, using the movement as A launch-pad. He explained that he had to  arrive IN Zaria earlier  than scheduled for his weekly  sermons to expose  and forestall what he described as a sinister plan to cause violence in the city.
El-Zakzaky, in a statement by his Media Adviser, Mallam Ibrahim Usman, in Kaduna, said he was acting on a tip-off over the plan by the Nigerian military to infiltrate the movement and kill unsuspecting soldiers, which will justify official clampdown on its members.

According to him, the sect has uncovered the plan where some armed soldiers will wear Hurras (Guards) traffic control volunteers’ uniforms, and would open fire on unsuspecting soldiers passing by.“While this is happening, they will have their camera ready, filming it and later blame it on ‘Shi’ites’. They would then begin manhunt and indiscriminate shooting of people,” he said.

He added, “The unsuspecting soldiers (the target) in four vehicles comprising 60 soldiers in each, two Hilux vans, Jeep and an ambulance hadactually arrived Leventis roundabout, scene of the planned shooting, disembarked with sign of hostility, but a sudden heavy downpour foiled their plan. They had to walk away disappointed as the situation was becoming uncontrollable.”

Zakzaky  explained  that the Hurras traffic control volunteers were earlier asked to withdraw and he also changed route, which left only the disguised soldiers visibly identified at the scene, and therefore had to quickly leave in full disappointment.
