Mob kills three members of IMN in Kaduna

12 October 2016, 18:01

Kaduna - The Islamic Movement of Nigeria (IMN) on Wednesday said three of its members were killed by a mob in Tudun Wada area of Kaduna during a procession.

Abdulmuminu Giwa, a member of the group, told the News Agency of Nigeria [NAN] in Kaduna that the mob also burnt down a house of one of the group’s leaders, and demolished its school located in the area.

Reports from Zaria, erstwhile national headquarters of the group, however, said the city was calm as residents went about their normal business.

The Kaduna State Police Command confirmed the attack on the houses of some of the sect’s members in Tudun Wada but denied receiving any report of death.

The command’s spokesman, ASP Aliyu Usman told NAN that security had been beefed up in the area to prevent further breakdown of law and order.

He warned hoodlums and mischief makers that the police would deal decisively with anyone caught fomenting trouble.

NAN recalls that the Kaduna State Government had on Friday, Oct. 7, declared the group as illegal.

The government also ordered the arrest of the group’s spokesman, Ibrahim Musa, who said the Shiites would challenge the order in court.
