Shiites Seek Prosecution Of Army Officers Involved In Kaduna Bombing

The Islamic Movement in Nigeria (IMN) staged a protest on Monday against the Nigerian Army’s bombing of Tudun Biri village in Igabi Local Government Area of Kaduna State, which they described as “accidental”.

The protesters marched from the Public Complaints Commission (PCC) in Maitama, Abuja, to the National Human Rights Commission (NHRC), where they submitted a petition signed by Sheikh Sidi Munir Mainasara Sokoto, a member of the movement. The petition was addressed to Anthony Ojukwu, the Executive Secretary of NHRC.

The group urged Ojukwu to pressure the Federal Government to investigate and prosecute the officers involved in the bombing, which they said was not a mistake but a deliberate attack. They said this was not the first time the army had bombed innocent civilians.

The group demanded that an investigation should be carried out to determine what happened, the number of casualties, and the damages suffered by the people of Tudun Biri as a result of the bombing. It also asked that the culprits of the massacre should be identified, investigated, and prosecuted.
