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.

“Any 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.”
