Nigeria Sleepwalking To Disaster With Shia Muslims by Naijiant: 3:58pm On May 20, 2018
President Muhammadu Buhari suggested that Nigerian youths are lazy during a recent trip to the UK.  But it appears that Nigeria's current teetering from one crisis to the next is down to his intellectual laziness and shockingly poor understanding of how his action and inaction contribute to escalating already dire situations.

Nothing proves this more than the response of the military and security services towards unarmed members of the Islamic Movement of Nigeria (IMN), the predominantly Shia movement led by Ibraheem Zakzaky, who has been detained with his wife since December 2015.  The detention followed a raid on his compound in Zaria, Kaduna State in which a Kaduna State government inquiry concluded that 348 IMN members were murdered by the army and buried in mass graves.  The army were alleged to have destroyed the evidence in this heinous crime.  IMN members have demonstrated peacefully almost daily in Abuja and other cities about the continued detention of Zakzaky and have been shot at by the Nigerian police and military.

The Iranian state-owned Press TV's The Debate discussed the issue yesterday in what it called "Nigeria crackdown" against the IMN.
