The elder brother of Sheikh Ibraheem Yakubu El-Zakzaky, the leader of the Islamic Movement in Nigeria (IMN), also known as Shiites, Sheikh Muhammad Sani Yakoob, reacted to the recent ban on IMN, stating that long ago.
El-Zakzaky’s elder brother, who is also Chairman of the Zaria section of Izalatul Bid’ia wa Ikamatus sunna, told our correspondent in an exclusive interview in Zaria, Kaduna, that the federal government should not stop at The IMN is outlawed, but it goes further to dissolve the Shiite sect in its entirety.
He said there is no difference between the IMN of his younger brother, the Shiite sect and the feared terrorist group Boko Haram, and added that both the leader of the deadly sect Boko Haram, Abubakar Shekau, and his younger brother, El-Zakzaky, they are terrorists
He said the federal government’s decision to outlaw the IMN was not only correct, but that it was late because the government could be overthrown through the group’s violent protests.
Sheikh Yakoob said the IMN leader is responsible for whatever calamity has befallen him, saying that he was warned when he started propagating “his dangerous Shi’ite doctrine.”
He said: “As you may be aware, El-Zakzaky is my blood brother. We were given birth to by the same father. While growing up, before he started this journey into Shi’ism, I didn’t have any close friend apart from him. We did everything together. We studied together in Islamic school.
“We warned him seriously to desist when he started this Shi’ism ideology. I personally warned him several times, and when he refused, I had to abandon him. So, whatever the authorities might have done to him, he caused it for himself.”
Sheikh Yakoob added: “There is nothing good about Shi’ism. These people are supposed to have been proscribed a long time ago, but the government waited until they are now causing havoc.
“In the entire world, where has the Chief of Army Staff ever been blocked on the way and denied right of passage? Since the time Shi’ites people did that to the Nigerian Chief of Army Staff, they were supposed to have been stopped. But now, the authorities seem to have understood their mission.
“Anywhere the Shi’ites are, they are always a problem. They are the ones that ruined Iraq. They are the ones that ruined Syria, Yemen and Lebanon. All the crises you see in the Middle-East, Shi’ites are responsible for them.
