The Islamic Movement of Nigeria, IMN, have pledged to surrender 21 million of its members if Buhari led Federal Government refused to release its leader, Ibrahim El-Zakzaky.
IMN declared the warning when they did the protest in Ikeja, Lagos State on Thursday.
Members of the group sang different songs, asking that the President Muhammadu Buhari-led administration should regard court orders and release El-Zakzaky.
Addressing reporters during the protest, the South-West Coordinator of IMN, Mr. Muftau Zakariya, urged the National Leader of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Bola Tinubu, to control Buhari to release it’s leader.
According to Zakariya, the group would not discontinue from protest until Buhari released El-Zakzaky.
“We are ready to die if our leader is not released. If they are ready to kill us, we have 21 million lives to offer. I know that Nigerian soldiers do not have 21 million bullets to shoot at us.
“It’s true that there are 21 million Shi’ites in Nigeria, and if they kill our leader, which country will they have to rule by 2023.
“Buhari got to the office because the National Leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, assisted him. It was Tinubu that started the movement and spent his money to ensure that the party assumes power. We’re calling on Tinubu, to talk to the President, who is a member of his party to free our leader. If he allows the President to continue to kill our members, there will not be Nigeria in 2023. We’re not happy over the continued detention of our leader.”
