Soldiers attack Islamic leader in Abuja



Spokesperson of the movement, Ibrahim Usman, told newsmen that an unidentified Hilux van parked by the roadside at Jere Kagoro Junction started trailing the Sheik’s convoy on entry, while another tried to stage an ambush at the front, but was overtaken by the convoy.

“The vehicle engaged the convoy in a senseless race, specifically aiming for the car in which Sheik Zakzaky was seated, up to the check point at the War College at Bwari.

“At the check point, the soldiers who were already on full alert took strategic positions with guns and demanded that all occupants of the vehicles step out and be checked.

“When head of the convoy demanded their mission and identification, the already charged soldiers would not listen despite several attempts to dialogue and threatened to shoot.

“When all appeal to sensibility failed, the Sheik’s convoy proceeded, but was vigorously pursued by the combined reinforcement of armed soldiers threatening to shoot.

“Not satisfied, the soldiers reinforced and intercepted the Islamic movement leader’s convoy again but were dodged, while some cars were badly damaged. At the Sheraton junction, they tried to erect another checkpoint which failed,” he said.

He wondered what was the mission of the armed soldiers and on whose orders they acted, adding that the unprovoked action of the soldiers was laced with insidious intent capable of disrupting the peace, and an insult on a man of God whose peaceful conduct was acclaimed all over the world.

“For the Islamic movement to succumb to intense scrutiny by the same military that one year ago, killed 34 brothers and sisters, including three of the Sheik’s sons during the International Quds Day peaceful procession, calls for intense caution.

“While we strongly condemn that acts as barbaric, uncouth and uncivilised, we call on all peace-lovers to condemn the act on innocent citizens.

“We cannot also succumb to pressure and unreasonable scrutiny on the same soldiers that have been after the life of our revered Sheik on daily basis since after the killings of his three children and followers.

“As a lawful citizen, Sheik Zakzaky has the right and privilege to move about with his people, anywhere, and conduct his activities without the slightest interrogation or hindrance,” he said

The statement said, “Even this week, two members of the group were engaged for wedding with two girls and will be tying the nuptial knots by this Saturday.

“The Ansaru (grooms) laid down some rules to the in-laws for the wedding. They ruled that after the wedding, they will take the brides to the forests and live there with them and do not want the brides to go along with any furniture except plates (coolers) and mattresses because anything other than those are not in tandem with their beliefs and convictions.”

No boyfriend, no clothes, no problem.

Kendall Jenner bared it all for her latest Instagram post, sunbathing completely in the nude amid her split from Devin Booker.

The supermodel, 26, was pictured laying on her stomach on a sun lounge, wearing nothing but a green 818 Tequila baseball cap.

A string bikini was strewn on the lounge beside her, along with a bottle of water, as she typed on her phone.

The photo dump, which she captioned simply with the blushing emoji, also featured pics and videos of herself horseback riding, enjoying a plate of sushi and the sunset.

“Tell me you and your bf broke up without telling me you and your bf broke up,” one follower commented, referencing her recent breakup from the 25-year-old NBA star.

The couple called it quits last week after two years together. Sources told Page Six they were on different pages about where the relationship was heading.

“While they care for each other, Devin was not going to propose marriage and his priority is his career,” the insider told us. “Kendall’s career also dominates her life.”

Just last month, the notoriously private reality star attended big sis Kourtney Kardashian and Blink-182 drummer Travis Barker’s wedding in Italy, with Booker in tow.

They were also recently spotted together at family friend Anastasia “Stassie” Karanikolaou’s birthday in Los Angeles.

The pair first started dating in Spring 2020 amid the COVID-19 pandemic. However, they didn’t confirm their romance until Valentine’s Day 2021.

Jenner made things Instagram-official at the time when she posted a photo of herself and Booker cuddling on social media.
