Judicial Inquiry Confirms Army’s Genocide against Shi’ites in Kaduna

The Kaduna State Commission of Inquiry into the December 2015 massacre of members of the Islamic Movement of Nigeria by the Nigerian Army has recommended the identification and prosecution of the soldiers who participated in the killing.

This is coming as the commission also indicted the Nigerian Army for its excessive use of force on the IMN also known as Shi’ites.

The Kaduna State Government on Sunday, July 31, 2016, officially released the Justice Mohammed Lawal-Garba-led Commission of Inquiry on the December 2015 bloody clash between the Nigerian Army and the Shiites.

The report, which was made available to newsmen, also indicted the leader of the Shiites, Sheikh Ibrahim El-Zakzaky, for his refusal to caution his members during the crisis, which it said, was “avoidable.”

The report read in part, “The commission is of the view that the use of excessive force by the Nigerian Army, which led to the heavy casualties recorded in the Cordon and Search Operation is an act of commission for which the NA is directly responsible.

“The commission therefore recommends that steps should immediately be taken to identify the members of the NA who participated in the killings of 12th- 14thDecember 2015 incident with a view to prosecuting them.”

The report, however, put the Shiites members on the watch-list of the state.
