Shiites deny alliance with B’Haram to attack military formations, other targets



The Islamic Movement of Nigeria (IMN) has dissociated itself from plans to enter into joint coalition with Boko Haram insurgents to unleash terror on the country.

The group denied the intelligence report, which alleged that it has formed an alliance with Boko Haram to unleash attacks against military installations and the country in general.

A statement yesterday by the group’s spokesman, Mallam Ibrahim Musa, said that: “In the past few days we have received some intelligence reports released by security agents insinuating that the Islamic Movement in Nigeria is planning a coalition with the terrorist organization, Boko Haram.

“The report further stated that due to the said strategic alliance with Boko Haram, attacks will be carried out on military formations and other government buildings.”

Musa continued: “Ordinarily we would not have reacted to this latest report, but the frequency with which the story is being peddled, since we have in the past reiterated our stance vis-à-vis terrorism and terrorist groups.”

He added that: “We detach the IMN from any attempt to associate it with violence and other militant activities. Sheikh Ibraheem El-Zakzaky, our revered leader has said it many times that ‘our weapon is positive reasoning, truth and good conduct.’

“Guns are for the reckless and foolhardy ones. We have been conducting our affairs peacefully, calling people to the truth for the last 36 years”.
