Breaking News: Evidence Emerges Of Mass Burials In Kano After Arbaeen Massacre On Members Of Imn

By STEPHEN LAWAN

Reports reaching us from Kano state said Photographs have emerged

showing the graves of over 30 victims of last week's massacre of

Shiites members of Islamic Movement of Nigeria who were on there way

to Zaria for Arbaeen Symbolic Trekking to commemorate Arbaeen Days of

the Killing the Grand Son f Prohet Muhammad SAW Imam Hussan A.S in a

peaceful religious procession on the outskirts of Kano.

Scores of people were killed and many injured after Nigerian security

forces attacked them with live rounds as they marked the 40-day

anniversary of Ashura.
The procession was one of many strands from all over the country

trying to reach the city of Zaria to join up with a gathering

organized by the Islamic Movement of Nigeria (IMN) which in previous

years has attracted several million people.
The photographs show several rows of freshly dug graves in a cemetery

in Kaukau village in Kano State. The graves, all unmarked, are

believed to belong to some of those gunned down in the military

assault on November 14.
The discovery comes as the Nigerian government faces mounting concern

over its recent treatment of the IMN. Last week Nigerian authorities

also demolished schools, hospitals and seminaries belonging to the IMN

in the state of Kaduna just as the Attorney General and Minister of

Justice was flying out to the International Criminal Court (ICC) in

The Hague to answer questions about another massacre last December.

The Nigerian government has been waging a bloody crackdown on the IMN

which has seen its leaders and followers killed, shot, arrested,

raped, beaten and harassed since December 2015 when an army attack led

to over 1000 people, mainly IMN members and supporters, being

massacred.
