Kaduna - The Governor of Kaduna State, Mallam Nasir Ahmad El-Rufai will receive the long awaited report of the Judicial Commission of Inquiry on the clashes between the Nigerian Army and Nigeria's Shiites under the leadership of detained Sheik Ibraheem Zakzaky this Friday in Kaduna, Saharareporters reports.

The Nigerian Army and the Shiites clashed on December 12th, 2015 in Zaria town, a clash that left several hundreds of the Shiites killed and buried by authorities in a mass grave in Kaduna State.

Governor El-Rufai’s Spokesperson, Samuel Aruwan who is presently in the United States attending a Future Leaders Programmme confirmed to SaharaReporters that the Chair of the commission, Justice Mohammed Lawal Garba will personally submit the report to the governor.

News24 previously reported that members of Islamic Movement in Nigeria (IMN), otherwise known as Shiites, have dragged the Nigerian Army to the International Criminal Court ( ICC ) in Hague for alleged war crimes in the December 2015 clash with the Army in Zaria.

The group said the Zaria clash was a war against the Shiites where over 1 000 of them were allegedly killed by the Army.

Media spokesman of the Islamic group, Ibrahim Musa, who disclosed this on Monday, said the International Human Rights Commission (IHRC) has on behalf of group called on the ICC to open a preliminary inquiry into the clash.
