We Didn’t Try to Assassinate COAS ‘Buratai’ – Shites Tell Their Side of the Story


The Islamic Shiite sect has denied attempting to assassinate chief of army staff Lt General Tukur Buratai .

A statement issued by the spokesperson of the sect, Isak K, claimed that members of the movement were unarmed and had gathered for a ceremony at their Hussainiyyah base to change the flag on the dome of the building to herald the beginning of the month of Rabiul /Auwal, the birth month of Prophet Muhammad when the incident happened.

β€œAny excuse given by the military as reason for besieging Hussainiyyah and firing for hours, leading to the death of yet to be specified number of people, is considered a lie of the decade.”
