IHRC report to UN on Nigerian Authorities’ Treatment to Islamic Movement

IHRC

The London-based rights group, the Islamic Human Rights Commission (IHRC) has submitted a report to the United Nations highlighting systematic state abuse in the Nigerian authorities’ treatment of the country’s Islamic Movement.

The report has been written for the upcoming review by the UN’s Human Rights Committee of Nigeria’s compliance with the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights.

The report focuses on the persecution of the Islamic Movement in Nigeria and its leaders and supporters since 2014, a period which has seen two massacres and routine killings, torture, and detention without trial amongst other abuses.

THE IMPLEMENTATION OF THE INTERNATIONAL COVENANT ON CIVIL AND POLITICAL RIGHTS (NON-REPORTING STATE) 126th Session (1 July 2019 to 26 July 2019)

Since at least 2014 the authorities in Nigeria have prosecuted a systematic and violent campaign to suppress the Islamic Movement of…

Three years after zaria massacre: demand for justice.

Sale Haruna Nass

By Yusuf Abdullahi
In the name of Allah Who states “On account of this, We prescribed for the children of Israel that whosoever killed a person -unless it be for killing a person or for creating disorder in the land – it shall be as if he had killed all mankind; and whoso gave life to one, it shall be as if he had given life to all mankind.

And Our Messengers came to them with clear Signs, yet even after that, many of them commit excesses in the land. many of them commit given life to all mankind” Q5:33
Peace and blessings of Allah be upon His noble servant, our master Muhammad and his purified progeny.
The piece for this week is on the 3rd anniversary of the unfortunate Zaria massacre where about a 1000 peaceful citizens were innocently murdered by the nation’s military who were constitutionally mandated to…

Judge’s Absence: Kaduna High Court Adjourns Again

Judge’s Absence: Kaduna High Court Adjourns Again

Reflection-Online

The Kaduna state high court presided by Justice Nyoms could not sit today as scheduled because of the absence of the Judge in the case brought against some, who were arrested as they trekked to attend a solemn religious occasion in Kaduna about two years ago.

They are being accused for, among others, belonging to an “unlawful” organization. It will be recalled that the El-Rufai government used a combined team of thugs and police to persecute minority Shi’a observances since 2016, which led to the brutal murder of some of them and the torching of religious center and schools.

The case was earlier fixed for today so that the defence could open its defence.

The case has now been adjourned to the 18th of October, 2018.

Court Rules Today On “No Case Submission” On Those Standing Trial Since Zaria Massacre

Court Rules Today On “No Case Submission” On Those Standing Trial Since Zaria Massacre

Reflection-Online

The Kaduna state High court will today Tuesday 31st July, 2015 rule on the “No Case Submission” entered by the defense lawyers in the case against about 100 members of the Islamic Movement facing charges of culpable homicide since the brutal December 2015 Zaria massacre.

No case submission was entered by the defense after a very long and tortuous trial spanning almost two years, in which the prosecutors, in the eyes of the defense, failed to establish a case against the defendants.

It remains to be seen what the court will decide today whether to free all or some of the accused or call on the defense lawyers to proceed to opening their defense.

We are set to break for you the news of whatever the court will decide today.
