Oct 12, 2016 – 13 Killed In Katsina, Kaduna & Sokoto States As Shiite Islamic Sect Members Clashed With Police

13 have been reportedly killed across Katsina, Kaduna and Sokoto states, when Shiites members and youths clashed during their procession.

The breakdown of the killings revealed that in Katsina State five were killed, in Kaduna four and in Sokoto State 2 died, while several vehicles were burnt during the incident.

LEADERSHIP newspaper reports that in Tudun Wada community of Kaduna South Local Government Area, irate youth attacked and killed four suspected members of the Shi’a sect, and torched the residence of their group’s leader Wednesday, witnesses said.

The mob also demolished the Shiite’s Islamic school in the area.
The incident occurred a day after a clampdown by Nigerian security forces prevented the Shiites from embarking on their planned annual procession.

“It’s the police that ordered the youths to attack us and to destroy our buildings,” one Shiite leader. “We shall address a press conference to give account of our encounter later,” he said.

It was learnt that an attempt by the Shiites to address a press conference at the Nigeria Union of Journalists secretariat, was botched as all of the journalists went underground.

Mallam Bala, a shop owner at Zango road, said the angry youth prevented the Shiite members from entering their communities after being dispersed by police tear gas.

“They were not in their traditional black dress, while being dispersed with police tear gas, but were being identified by vigilant youths who engaged them in a fight. Those who resisted were killed; the house of their leader Mukhtar was burnt down and their Markas (school) is currently being demolished by youths,” he said.

He said fire service helped put out fire at Mukhtar’s house.

“The situation is under control,” a police source has confirmed to our reporter.

Bashir Sani, another resident of the area, said the youth broke into the Shiite leader’s house, carted away valuables before setting the house ablaze.

“The Shiite members died of injuries sustained while being lynched with sticks and machetes,” he said.

    This is nothing but pure identity mistated due be to foolishness, dumbest, stupidity, and ignorant of inferior people trying to called themselves or identify with other people that are not like them. How many Muslims from Saudi Arabia, Iran, Iraq, Syria, Afghanistan and other Arab nations will accept Hausa or Fulani from Africa as one of them? These fools are now killing themselves like goats and rising another ethnic flag in their fathers land. This is not different from some blind and inferior Nigerian people calling themselves Israelites or Jewish because of problem of identity or inferiority complex. This group of people are also carrying Isreal flag in our various cities and towns deceiving themselves that they are Jewish Nigerians, what a shameful thing. Can IsrealI government ever agree that any Nigerian tribe is one of them? The answer is capital ” No” Why? Those Ethiopian that relocated to Isreal are being treated not even like 2nd class but 4th class citizens in Israel today. If this Ethiopians tribe or group that are linked biblical to Isreal because of King Solomon relationship with the Queen of Shiba of original Ethiopian are treated like 4th class citizens in present day Isreal, We Nigerian people should wake up and realize that this is the only nation we can proudly called home without begging any group of people for acceptance. Those Hausa / Fulani calling themselves Shiite in Nigeria are bastards if they don’t relocate back to their source-Iran, Syria and certain parts of Jodan and Iraq. Dumb fools.
