FG Will Probe Zaria Shia Massacre – AGF

Barely a month after a violent clash between soldiers in the convoy of the Chief of Army Staff, Major-General T. Y. Buratai, and members of the Shiite Islamic Movement of Nigeria, IMN, which led to the bloody massacre of hundreds of Muslim Shiites, the Federal Government has opted to probe the incident, which has heightened tension in the religious circles.

The Attorney General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Mr. Abubakar Malami, who gave the indication of the investigation while receiving a 10-man delegation from the President, Nigeria Supreme Council for Islamic Affairs and Sultan of Sokoto, said the unfortunate incident was avoidable.

This was contained in a statement made available to the media by Mr. Salihu Othman Isah, Special Adviser on Media and Publicity to the Attorney General and Minister of Justice.

Malami said it was not clear yet whether the probe would be instituted by the Federal Government or the Kaduna State Government but said the investigation was necessary to prevent a future recurrence.
