A former lawmaker, Shehu Sani says the spirits of murdered EndSARS protesters of 2020 and the members of the Islamic Movement in 2015 would continue to haunt the nation and hang over its skies until justice is done.
Sani also claimed that the killing of the 103 EndSARS protesters in Lagos was one of the hidden atrocities of the former President Muhammadu Buhari’s era.
In a statement via his verified Twitter handle on Monday, the social critic claimed that members of the Islamic Movement were massacred in Zaria on the orders of the military and was publicly supported by the former Governor of Kaduna State.
He wrote, “In 2015, over a thousand members of the Islamic Movement were massacred in Zaria on the orders of the then military COAS and publicly supported by the then Governor of Kaduna State.
“The general public were encouraged through hateful propaganda to march and dance on the corpses of the victims and search for anything valuable in their pockets.
“The bullet riddled and charred remains of the victims including women and children were reportedly buried in mass graves in Kaduna state.Their offence was simply that they ‘blocked the road against the Army chief.
“The killing of the 103 EndSARS protesters in Lagos is one of the hidden atrocities of the Buhari era.The spirits of those murdered whether for ‘blocking’ the road in Zaria or ‘blocking’ the Lekki gate will continue to haunt this country and hang over its skies until justice is done.”
