The Islamic Movement of Nigeria, IMN, has berated the Governor El-Rufai-led government in Kaduna State over the demolition of its schools in Zaria.
In a statement by its President of Media Forum, Ibrahim Musa, the movement alleged that security agents who demolished its educational facility allowed miscreants to loot valuable property of the school.
Tagging the demolition illegal, the group said it was issued any notice prior to the demolition, even as there was no court order directing the said action.
The statement reads in part: “A combined team of security and Kaduna State government personnel have demolished the Fudiyya Islamic School at Zaria and the Husainiyya in Saminaka.
“The Fudiyya Islamic School in Zaria is a registered educational facility of the Islamic Movement in Nigeria with nursery, primary and secondary sections with hundreds of pupils.
“The Husainiyya in Saminaka was under construction when the Wahhabis lured the KDSG to stop the construction. The government used state resources and filed a case before the court and a court order was issued for the construction to be stopped which the IMN complied with.
“The KDSG never issued any notice before this demolition. They didn’t also show any court order authorizing them to that effect. They simply came with bulldozers along with heavily armed security personnel and commenced the demolition of the Islamic center.
“In the process of demolishing the Fudiyya School in Zaria they shattered the tomb of late Alhaji Hamid Danlami which the bulldozer ran over. The security agents became spectators when miscreants at the scene were busy looting and carting away valuables of the school.”
