19 April 2016, 16:17

Zaria - The Zazzau Emirate Development Association has accused Islamic Movement in Nigeria (IMN), otherwise called the Shi’ite of terrorising Zaria.

The association on Monday testified against the Islamic Movement in Nigeria (IMN) before the Judicial Commission of Enquiry in Kaduna.

Spokesman for ZEDA Mohammed Balarabe, said the group took the law into its hands and shut roads while holding processions, forcing people to stay indoors.

He said the last December 12 clash between the IMN and the Army was not the first, noting that the group is violent.

The ZEDA spokesman cited instances when the body had encounters with the Emir of Zaria, Alhaji Shehu Idris and ex-Governor Mukhtar Ramalan Yero.

He recalled that the movement had encounters with previous administrations.

Balarabe said the Shi’ite leader, Sheikh Ibrahim El-Zakzaky and his followers were not members of ZEDA, adding that they refused to register with the association.
