Spokesman for the IMN, known as Shiite group,Ibrahim Musa has said that thugs attacked a team distributing food items to the needy in and around Gyellesu residence in particular and Zaria in general at the start of the Holy month of Ramadan
He said that the distribution of food was done on behalf of the leader of the Islamic movement in Nigeria, Sheikh Ibraheem Zakzaky, as has been his practice for several years.
“Being detained this year, it was his wish that the humanitarian assistance provided by him must be continued irrespective of whether or not the government releases him. To fulfil this wish, on Monday 6th June, assorted food items were distributed as was the practice, with families happily collecting with so much gratitude.
“Though the event went on well on its first day, hell was let loose the next day.
“The following day however, certain thugs sponsored by Kaduna state government appeared in the Gyellesu neighbourhood, wielding machetes and sticks and pelting stones at both those who carried out the distribution as well as the beneficiaries. They forcefully confiscated the food items and littered the streets with them in a manner that only vandals would do.”
