Saudi Arabia Takes Proxy War With Iran To Nigeria by Marlboro1: 5:24am On Jan 17, 2016
On Dec. 12, Nigerian government forces carried out a brutal massacre against the country’s minority Muslim Shia population, with some media reporting over 1,000 killed, after the military imprisoned and tortured the group’s important dissident leader Sheikh Ibrahim Zakzaky.

The news of the slaughter of a minority religious group emerges as Nigeria announced it is considering joining Saudi Arabia in the fight against Daesh (the Arabic acronym for the group commonly known in the West as ISIS), linking two nations known for repression and repeated, disturbing human rights violations. Saudi Arabia, in turn, has a history of promoting the extremist religious ideology of Wahhabism that inspires terrorist groups like Nigeria’s own Boko Haram, the terrorist group that the country is still struggling to control, and even al-Qaida and Daesh.

And Zakzaky isn’t the only activist to face imprisonment in recent months — Nigeria has a reputation for quashing political dissent no matter where it’s source. However, the arrest and crackdown came just months after Muhammadu Buhari, a retired army general, successfully won election on a promise to restore order to the country.

We have Roman Catholic, we have Anglican system, We have various Protestant communions etc all over Nigeria and non of these has ever dared to disturb the Peace of ordinary Nigerians. The Sunnis established The Caliphate in Sokoto and took over the entire Northern part of Nigeria for granted. They now dictate to their whims and caprice to the rest of Nigeria from Sokoto. We had Matasine dinning and winning in Government house in Kano and killing and maiming people with reckless abandon. Bokoharam took over the entire NE and still rampaging and confiscating towns and cities like they belong to Saudi. And in the face of this nightmare, a group gathered under a nonentity called Saksaky, called itself Shiites, barricaded themselves on a Major Highway and started preventing movement and passage to the Emir of Sausau, the Governor of the State, the President of the Federation apart from ordinary citizens and the Chief Security Officer(COAS) and you call this common place? Let's have a Sovereign National Conference(SNC) to iron out our crises before you ruin this Nation for us.
