We have no plans to steal Shiite bodies from Zaria mass grave – Nigerian troops

30 April 2016, 20:00

Abuja – Nigerian troops have dismissed reports that they planned to exhume Shiite bodies buried in a mass grave in Zaria, Kaduna.

According to Premium Times, the bodies were believed to be those of Shiite Muslims killed and secretly buried by troops in December.

A report by Sahara Reporters had earlier indicated that the military planned to exhume and take away bodies of some of the hundreds of Shiites, who were shot dead in a confrontation with the army.  

Dismissing the report, the army described it as an “unfounded and spurious allegation”, adding that it was “a concoction of lies and [a] deliberate effort by the Islamic Movement in Nigeria (IMN) to portray the Nigerian Army's image negatively”, Sahara Reporters said. 

Amnesty International last week accused the Nigerian army of deliberately shooting dead members of the Shiite Muslim group during clashes 80km away in Zaria in December.

Most of the evidence of the military action, the destruction of the IMN cultural and religious centre, and the house of the group's leader Ibrahim Zakzaky was "meticulously destroyed", it added.

The rights group said that satellite footage and witness accounts offered damning new evidence that Nigeria's military killed hundreds of minority Shiite Muslims late last year.
