Shiites to sue El-Rufa’i over ban

The Islamic Movement in Nigeria (IMN), on Saturday, said it would institute a legal action against Governor Nasir el-Rufai of Kaduna State for declaring the group illegal.
Spokesperson of the movement, Ibraheem Musa, told newmen in Kaduna that the ban announced by the government was illegal.
“Its an infringement on our basic right as citizens of the country. We are not going to be intimidated into taking any violent or unlawful activity but will take legal action against the Kaduna State Government for the infringement.“
The government had on October 7 declared the IMN an unlawful society.
The government, in a statement, said that it took the decision to preserve peace and security in the state.
“The action is also taken to ensure that all persons and organisations are guided by lawful conduct and with due allegiance to the Nigerian state and its Constitution.”
