Shite Movement Debunk Lai Mohammed’s N3.5 Million Feeding Bill On Leader



  • Zakzaky Recently Complained Of Poor Feeding

The Islamic Movement of Nigeria, IMN, the body representing the Shite movement in the country has debunked the claim of the minister of information, Alhaji Lai Mohammed that the government is spending N3.5 million monthly to feed the detained Shite leader, Sheikh Ibraheem Zakzaky.

The movement in a statement issued by the president of its media forum, Ibrahim Musa said that on the contrary that the sheik had recently complained of poor feeding when he received some members of the movement.

The group said that the revelation by the minister was part of the grand deception of the administration to present a “human face” after what it described as the brutal slaughter of more than one thousand innocent and defenseless civilians in Zaria in December 2015.

“This same government had also told the world through the Federal High Court in Abuja that the Sheikh didn’t do anything wrong, but they shot him and the wife and all the atrocities was only to protect him. The Court was not convinced and so ordered that he should be set free. The government reneged.

“Now they shamelessly lie to the world that they are “good” to him.

“Moreover when some members of the Islamic Movement in Nigeria met the Sheikh early last month, among the things he complained of is the poor feeding he is facing since transferred to Kaduna six months ago. Considering his age and failing health he deserves some special feeding arrangements, but those holding him custody have denied him that.

“This clearly shows that some security officers are looting public funds under the guise of keeping the Sheikh under ‘protective custody’ which a federal high court in Abuja has since declared illegal under the constitution.

“Also the Minister’s claim which he said is ‘off the record’ clearly exposes the corruption in the DSS. This figure could be true in their records, but they actually use that to loot public funds in the name of feeding the Sheikh, while in reality the Sheikh is the one catering for himself and buying all his domestic needs.

“The N115,000 daily feeding claim by the Minister is similar to the case of Nigerian Prisons where the government claimed they spend N14,500:00 daily in feeding every individual prisoner in Nigeria. But a visit to the prison tells you that is all lies. The prisoner is malnourished and sick apart from living in congestion with absolutely zero hygiene.

“We consider the statement of the Minister of information as an insult to the personality of our leader Sheikh Ibraheem Zakzaky. We advise the Minister to desist from involving the Sheikh in his unfortunate lies and for once tell Nigerians the actual truth that the government does not spend such amount on Sheikh Zakzaky.”
