The case to arrest arrested Zeenat Zakzaky

15 March 2016, 14:07 Peregrino Brimah

The height of wickedness: after a mother watched three of her sons shot to death in cold blood, after a year previous she had similarly lost another three of her sons killed by the same Nigerian army; and after she had just witnessed her husband shot six times, and after she herself was shot twice, in her leg and stomach and beaten up, and after she has since been arrested and detained without charge for 90 days since the tragic day, a man from hell called Danbaba Gyang, sponsored by soldiers from hell asks for her to be arrested upon being already arrested!

Quoting The Nation of December 15th, 2015: "The General Officer Commanding (GOC) 1 Mechanised Division, Kaduna, Maj.-Gen. Adeniyi Oyebade, said yesterday that the Zaria-based leader of the Shi’ite Islamic Movement of Nigeria, Sheikh Ibraheem El-Zakzaky and his wife were in the protective custody of the military."

When you read of the new advocates for the continued oppression of the Islamic movement and 10 million minority Shia of Nigeria, you ask: where were these names when we waged Jihad against Boko Haram as it ravaged Nigeria for five straight years, killing over 50,000 poor Nigerians; and where were these "concerned" and proactive citizens when Dasuki and Jonathan terrorized and killed us and we fought them tooth and dagger?

They are going to court and asking the court to arrest the already arrested and detained-for-90-days without charge and constitutional rights to bail, legal, medical and family access, mother who has just lost six of her sons to the burutal Nigerian army.

When I wrote my article on March 8th, alerting the world on the continued illegal detention of Mrs Zeenat Zakzaky, the last thing I thought they will do is call for the arrest of her already arrested self. These type can kill a dead body and exhume the graves of those they have killed past...oh, they actually already did that.

When you think you have seen the worst of it, they come out with another one again.

Evil has no greater level. I do not believe man can be any more wicked. 

It is a pity that the new administration is watching, protecting and being part of this grave oppression and these continued crimes against humanity.

The Bible says: Psalm 10:17: Lord, you have heard the request of the oppressed; you make them feel secure because you listen to their prayer. 18 You defend the fatherless and oppressed, so that mere mortals may no longer terrorize them. 

The Prophet of Islam said: "Fear the prayer of the oppressed, even if he is a disbeliever, for there is no barrier (between it and Allah [the God])." (Al-Bukhari and Muslim).

And what is wrong with you that you fight not in the Cause of Allâh, and for those weak, illtreated and oppressed among men, women, and children, whose cry is: “Our Lord! Rescue us from this town whose people are oppressors; and raise for us from You one who will protect, and raise for us from You one who will help.” [004:075: Al Quran].

With time, Alex Badeh sat on the cement floor of Kuje prison. Who would have thunk. Dear Lord, load us with the power of patience.
